Released By Osceola School District
The Osceola School District once again ranked 67th out of 67 Florida school districts in administrative expenditures per student in a ranking of the 2017-2018 school year by the Florida Department of Education. While the state average was $590.14 per student for administrative costs, which includes school administration and district support functions among other things, Osceola spent only $427.94 per student, placing priority on spending taxpayers’ money where it best impacts children.
“The Osceola County School Board believes that the best use of taxpayers’ dollars is for instruction in the classroom,” said School Board Chairman Clarence Thacker. “While Osceola County remains at the bottom of the state in terms of the amount of operational dollars we received per student, we are committed to using each and every dollar in the best possible manner for the students.”
