Full-Time Equivalent Personnel (visual)
Full-time equivalent personnel represents a calculation of the number of employees working for the District stated as full-time positions only. Thus, two half-time positions would count as one full-time equivalent in this presentation. Staffing levels may vary throughout the year. This information is from District records as presented in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
Property Tax Revenue Per Student (visual)
Property tax revenue includes property tax collections, penalties and interest and other tax related income and is presented here with two different sets of data. The first is calculated using audited financial statement data for the Maintenance & Operations/General Operating Fund only. The Maintenance & Operations/General Operating Fund is used to account for the day-to-day operations of the District and does not include property taxes imposed specifically to repay debt (Interest & Sinking/Debt Service Fund property taxes). The second is calculated using audited financial statement data for both the Maintenance & Operations/General Operating Fund and Interest & Sinking/Debt Service Fund. The district has no sales tax revenue.
