WASHINGTON

Washington published per-pupil spending data for FY 18 on the Washington State Report Card and on separate per-pupil expenditure pages with comparisons to district and state averages. Washington is expected to release FY 19 per pupil spending data by June 2020. 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.
