Current Expense of Education Per ADA

The General Fund contains the regular operating revenues and expenditures of school districts. These are labeled as restricted or unrestricted. Those that are unrestricted may be used for general purposes. The items whose purpose is restricted by law or regulation must be accounted for or tracked separately. All transactions except those required (or permitted) by law to be in another fund are accounted for in the General Fund.

The General Fund also lists Other Financing Sources/Uses (often transfers among funds), a Year-End Summary, and the Components of Ending Fund Balance. This tab has bar charts comparing the percent of revenues and expenditures by category for this district, the average for the type of district, and the statewide average. And it shows the cost of direct educational services to students, called the "Current Expense of Education."

Note: Prior to 2003-04, financial data for charter schools authorized by the district (when available) was included in the district's financial statement. For 2003 forward, only charter school data reported with the district's General Fund is included; data in other charter school funds, or reported separate from the district, are no longer in the district's General Fund financial statement.

Note: Districts and county offices report their revenues and expenditures to the California Department of Education (CDE) prior to the completion of their annual audit. The CDE makes every effort to catch errors or misinterpretations. However, the unaudited information is not changed after it has been certified and released by the CDE. Therefore, this report may include some uncorrected data.

Los Angeles Unified, 2009-10
  Unrestricted Restricted Total
Adjusted Beginning Fund Balance $255,778,366 $494,183,589 $749,961,956
Excess (Deficiency) of Revenues over Expenditures 1,121,132,438 (1,065,687,128) 55,445,310

Ending Fund Balance $366,939,923 $280,004,958 $646,944,881
 


The Adjusted Beginning Balance includes audit adjustments and other restatements. This is why the adjusted beginning balance for this year might not look like the ending fund balance from last year.

The Ending Fund Balance is the adjusted beginning balance plus or minus the difference between revenues, expenditures, and other financing sources or uses, such as proceeds from the sale of bonds or authorized transfers of money to another Fund for other than general operations.

The components of the Ending Fund Balance are:
  • money that may only be spent on designated purposes
  • amounts reserved by the governing board for emergencies, economic uncertainties, or other particular purposes, and
  • surpluses (if any) that are not designated or reserved for specific purposes.

CURRENT EXPENSE OF EDUCATION PER ADA
(Per Education Code Section 41372)
Los Angeles Unified, 2009-10
By law, the "current expense of education" must be calculated annually for every district; it is a measure of the cost of direct educational services to students. This figure is then matched with average daily attendance(ADA) for the district to arrive at an expenditure per pupil figure. Since the current expense figure excludes food services, facilities acquisition and construction, and certain other expenditures, the current expense per ADA amount is lower than the total expenditure per ADA shown in the table above.
