Why it Matters: Mouse over the dots to see which district is reflected and the detail about their expenditures per student. The Expenditures Analysis graph correlates the size of schools, as measured by Total Expenditures, and Expenditures per Student respectively. The district on the far right has the largest budget. The district on the far left has the smallest budget. The higher up you travel on the graph indicates districts that spend the most per student. (n075) (o35)

Data Source: The school district financial data comes from two sources. Historic data is provided by downloads from the Michigan Department of Education, Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) Financial Information Database (FID). Future data is loaded by the respective school district financial department. (n040)
