Why it Matters: This chart displays the trend in Total Enrollment to the enrollment trend of English Language Learners (ELL) and Special Education students. ELL students and Special Education students require significantly more resources. Districts experiencing an increase in the percentage of ELL and Special Education students would expect to see increasing costs per pupil. (n114) (o208)

Data Source: The school district financial data comes from two sources. Historic data is provided by downloads from the Michigan Department of Education, Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) Financial Information Database (FID). Future data is loaded by the respective school district financial department. (n040)
