36th Annual Maintenance and Operations Cost Study: Schools.

Web Abstract: 
Presents the results of a 2006 study of public school districts, revealing that maintenance and operations expenditures averaged 9.19 per cent of total expenditures, compared to the previous year's figure of 7.58 percent. This represents a high since the late 1990's, but is still considerably below that of 20 years ago. Utility spending represented the largest increase, at 28 percent. The survey methodology is described, with numerous tables displaying costs per student, costs per square foot, historical spending data, types of expenditures, payroll and personnel data, and buildings and grounds statistics.
