Buffalo Public Schools per pupil spending third highest among large districts in nation

Chief financial officer "Smith noted that when the district analyzed its general fund spending for 2010, it found that costs per student were $16,545. That included $1,457 per student to cover retiree health insurance, she said. That district analysis did not include about $140 million in grant revenues that the district spent in addition to its general fund.

That would account for an additional $4,000 per student."
