Subject: Figures you might be able to use from TEA website
Lindsey these are a quick look at what a school brings in and what it costs the district to run it for 1 year.
Questions call xxx-xxxx.
These figures are for 2012-2013 last year available.
Enrollment = 62.884
Total Revenue All Funds, Local tax, State help, Federal help = $590,862,929
Therefore each student is worth $590,862,929 divided by 62,844 which is $9,396 to the EPISD
Let’s look at one of the South side schools that has been named to close, Beall elementary.
The enrollment in Oct of 2013 was 480 students so how much money did these students bring into the EPISD $9,396 times 480 = $4,510,117
So how much did it cost the EPISD to keep this school open for this year 2012-2013
This data is for school year 2011-2012 and it is the last year available so the figures are not a 100% a valid comparison but I can assure you that they are very close to the 2012-2013.
Expenditures per Student
Beall EPISD AVG.
Total Operating Expenditures $7,443 $8,360
Instruction $5,499 $5,008
Instructional Leadership $63 $88
School Leadership $459 $501
So we have a cost to EPISD to keep this school open of $3,572,640 or they made a profit of $937,477
Of course we know that the ADMINISTRATIVE costs are not included in the School Report Card (Expenditures per Student) and I guess this profit is not enough, so we need to put these children on busses and send them to a school that makes more profit.
