9.12 - Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Per-pupil Expenditures Reporting and the Proposed Expansion of the School-level Finance Survey (SLFS)
Room: Andy Kirk B

Chair: Stephen Q. Cornman, U.S. Department of Education

Policy Maker or Practitioner: Stephen Q. Cornman, U.S. Department of Education
Discussants: Stephen Q. Cornman, U.S. Department of Education, Christopher May, Michigan Department of Education, Stephen Wheeler, U.S. Census Bureau, Osei L. Ampadu, U.S. Census Bureau

This policy talk describes proposed variables to make the School-Level Finance Survey (SLFS) directly analogous to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provisions on reporting expenditures per-pupil at the LEA and school levels, and explores the relationship between federal school finance surveys and those provisions. The SLFS is essentially an expansion of the LEA-level School District Finance Survey (F-33) and the state-level National Public Education Finance Survey (NPEFS) to include consistent variables at the school level.

Since the passage of ESSA in 2016, multiple state education agencies (SEAs) have expressed interest in participating in the SLFS. There is a new requirement under ESSA for states and local education agencies (LEAs) to add to their annual report cards “the per-pupil expenditures of Federal, State, and local funds, including actual personnel expenditures and actual nonpersonnel expenditures of Federal, State, and local funds, disaggregated by source of funds, for each local educational agency and each school in the State for the preceding fiscal year.” (§1111 (h)(1)(C)(x) and (h)(2)(C)).
