ISBE wants your stories about the research allocation decisions you have made within your school, district, or surrounding community to improve the quality of the education you provide. If you have a story of using expenditure data to influence decision-making or otherwise strategically allocating resources, please fill out the form below with a short summary of your efforts.​

The Every Students Succeeds Act contains a short but significant provision requiring LEAs to report not only district-level expenditure data but also, for the first time, school-level expenditure data.  This reporting began with FY19 data and is reported each year on the Illinois Report Card.  LEAs are required to report actual personnel and non-personnel expenditures of both site-specific and district centralized expenditures. Expenditures will be shown at the site level and must be disaggregated by source of funds (federal vs. state/local).
