WASHINGTON

In 2019 Washington was one of the first states to publish school-by-school spending data. School-level spending details are included on the online Washington State Report Card and on separate per-pupil expenditure pages with comparisons to district and state averages. Explore Washington’s spending data below or jump over to the state report card HERE.

A note from the Washington report card page: These per-pupil amounts are estimated based on district reported data. Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction used a uniform allocation method to estimate the per-pupil amounts. OSPI will use this method to report per-pupil expenditures until the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
