  • Public Funding For Our Schools: Our District is “Community Funded” (aka “Basic Aid”).  That means the district retains its share of property tax revenue, which is where most of our public funding comes from. Here is the rough breakdown on public funding for the district:

$9 million in public revenue for 530 students

Includes $3 million in "excess" funding

  • Allocation of Public Funding:

Willow Creek:  Receives approximately $4.0 million (~$10,000 per student)

Bayside MLK & District: Receives approximately $5.0 million ($40,000 per student)

“District overhead” is less than $1 million, which would make Bayside MLK’s per student share over $30,000
