What’s the net revenue effect?

By March 7, 2011

Sunday’s article about interdistrict school transfers omitted one very important figure from the story. It was stated that the 452 interdistrict transfer students are not a burden on the Davis school district as they bring in about $5,200 per student per year in Average Daily Attendance funds. This amounts to an additional $2.35 million in yearly gross revenue to the district.

The obvious question with regard to revenue effects is, what does it cost to educate a student in the Davis school district — more or less than $5,200 per year? In the absence of that figure it is not possible to determine whether these transfer students are a net asset or a net burden on the school district.
