Concerns About Recently Released School Spending Report

Posted Date: 03/21/2023


 A new report on Arizona school spending was recently released. We have attached a link to this report. However, we want to share with you some concerns about this new report. Scott Thompson, Jeremy Calles and Anabel Aportela worked with this new system and have concerns about the accuracy of some of the calculations provided by the new system. The errors included student count problems and other calculation issues. We suggest that school districts currently not use this new system at this time. The calculations for charter schools from the new system appear to be accurate.If you need statewide  and school district spending numbers, you should use the recently released Arizona School District Spending-Fiscal Year 2022 available from the Arizona Auditor General,
