FY21 Per Pupil Administrative Cost Average
April 1, 2020
Section 10.04 of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) Regulations for School Finance, and Section VI of DESE's Guidelines for Student and Financial Reporting provide the option of charging and reporting municipal administrative costs based on the statewide average cost per student of these services. For municipalities and school committees that have agreed to use this method for their budgeting and year-end reporting, the per pupil administrative average cost to be used in FY21 is $123.32.
This average is based on municipal expenditures reported on the 2018-2019 End-of-Year Pupil and Financial Report and in-district enrollment derived from End-of-Year SIMS submissions.
