2 One in a series on K-12 Education expenditure patterns in California The report has 4 Sections: o Section 1: Statewide Summary Data o Section 2: Statewide Special Education Data o Section 3: Selected School District Comparisons o Section 4: Selected 52 School District Profiles Partial Funding for this report provided by the California Chamber of Commerce Educational Foundation
3 Data utilized in this report were obtained from several sources, including the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Economic Research Unit of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, and the California Department of Education. The “Methodology” Section of the report provides a highly detailed discussion of how all data were aggregated, analyzed, and presented. In general, adult education, community service, and capital-related costs were rinsed from the totals, as were costs from joint powers authorities (JPAs) and county offices of education (COEs)
4 Average Daily Attendance (ADA) fell from approximately 5.8 million in FY 2003-04 to 5.6 million in FY 2008-09
5 Spending for Certificated Teacher Salaries & Benefits as a % of Total Operating Expenditures (excl. capital) has declined from FY 03-04 to FY 08-09
6 Had total expenditures per student been held to the same rate of increase as CA per capita personal income from FY 06-07 to FY 07-08, an estimated $1.8 billion would have been freed up to hire an additional 22,076 teachers. Total expenditures per student (excl. capital) increased from $7,851 in FY 03-04 to $9,876 in FY 08-09
7 Statewide salary expenditures for Classified Supervisors & Administrators increased by 44% from FY 03-04 to FY 08-09 and by 28% for Certificated Supervisors and Administrators for the same period. Salary expenditures for Certificated Teachers increased by 21% over this time, while CA per capita personal income increased by 15%. Direct “In the Classroom” expenditures went from 59% of Total Expenditures (excl. capital) in FY 03-04 to 58% in FY 08-09.
8 Total Special Education ADA remained fairly constant at 3% of Total Statewide K-12 ADA for the period FY 03-04 to FY 08-09. In terms of spending, special education costs grew as a percentage of Total Statewide K-12 spending.
9 Total Expenditures (excl. capital) per student varied substantially among the 52 selected school districts examined.
10 Teacher Salaries and Benefits as a percentage of Total Expenditures (excl. capital) also varied substantially among the 52 selected school districts examined.
