DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
The Washington, D.C. Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) published FY19 school-by-school spending data on their report card, known as the “Star Framework.” Located in the “Profile” section of each school’s report, OSSE compares per-pupil expenditures to the district average. The “more per-pupil expenditure details” link provides a breakdown of the expenditures, including source of funds and how much was spent directly at the school.
