ILLINOIS

The Illinois State Board of Education published FY 2019-20 school-by-school spending data in the “School Environment” tab of the Illinois Report Card. This includes the ability to compare spending by school within a district, by demographics, and broken out by federal, state and local dollars. Illinois also includes in-depth explanations about the per-pupil spending data and the ESSA requirement, as well as space for districts to provide additional information about their schools and factors that may influence the per-pupil expenditures. Explore Illinois’ spending data below, or access the Report Card here and find more detailed school spending information via the “ISBE Data Library.”

WHAT YOU CAN LEARN FROM THE REPORT CARD ABOUT PER SCHOOL SPENDING

Illinois provides the per-pupil cost for each school compared to the district average. To determine the state average you must download the “Report Card Public Data Set” (Excel file) from the “ISBE Data Library” and conduct your own calculations.

Visit your school’s report card to view your school’s spending. There is an option to view spending per student for every school in the district under the “Full District” tab.

The “ISBE Data Library” includes a link to the “Report Card Public Data Set” (Excel file), which provides a list of all the schools, their outcomes, enrollment, demographics, and per-pupil spending. The school-by-school expenditure data is broken out by total spending by source, instructional costs, services, and other pertinent information.
