  • School district spending

    How much does your school district spend?

    Here's a look at how much each school district in Oklahoma spent per pupil overall and the percentages it spent on administration in school year 2012-2013. Data is from the Oklahoma Office of Educational Quality and Accountability.


    A closer look at superintendents' pay.

    Here's a table showing what superintendents at each Oklahoma school district earned in 2013-2014, as recorded by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
    Some totals are partial-year compensation because the superintendent took office during the fiscal year. Enrollment was not provided for some districts, so pay-per-student was not calculated. Total compensation per student is not intended as a definitive measure of whether someone is overpaid or underpaid, only as a starting point for comparing superintendent salaries among districts of all sizes.
