Yesterday we looked at demographic information about McHenry County school districts.
Today, with the help of a Friend of McHenry County Blog, we shall explore information on how the money is spent.
Two statistics are shown below:
- Expenditures per pupil excluding capital expenditures. Consider these daily operating expenses.
- Expenditures per classroom
