Financial Information

The district has an annual operating budget of $36 million dollars per year.  Nearly 50% of this funding is received from the State, and around 40% comes from local property taxes.  Additional local sources including a parcel tax and donations (8%) and federal funding (4%) provide the remainder.*  Per State law, funds for facilities construction and other specific uses are managed separately.
