Why it Matters: The primary purpose of the Personnel Expenditures chart is to illustrate how much of a district's total budget is spent on personnel and related benefits. Caution should be used when using these financial data as sound conclusions can only be drawn when the data are used in proper context, especially considering that some districts outsource services, which then appear in different categories/reports. Personnel expenditure costs are based on object codes districts are required by law to follow based on a Uniform Chart of Accounts. (n072) (o53)

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)
