Per Pupil Expeditures by District & School - State Calculation
Per pupil expenditures are calculated by the State of Connecticut based on the annual State EFS report. This per pupil expenditure includes local appropriations, in kind services and any grant funds provided to the district. The per pupil expenditure is adjusted based on enrollment and a year behind in calculation. Please note, when comparing schools, there can be some differences based on specialized programs that are housed in certain buildings, longevity of staff, etc. In addition, the BHS budget also includes athletics. The most interactive website to view per pupil expenditures is at the following link through the School and State Finance Project.
State Per Pupil Expenditures by District Reference Group and Region
District Reference Groups (DRGs) is a classification system in which districts that have public school students with similar socioeconomic status (SES) and need are grouped together. Grouping like districts together is useful in order to make legitimate comparisons among districts. The charts show district per-pupil expenditures in comparison to accountability scores.
Regional spending data compares public school spending between communities that surround Bethel. The charts show regional accountability scores alongside regional per-pupil expenditures.

Other Funding Sources
Unexpended Funds Account
The unexpended funds account was originally legislated in 2010 and revised in 2019. This allows districts to enter into agreement with municipalities to deposit up to 2% of the budget into a non-lapsing account to address emergencies and opportunities. Our agreement with the Board of Finance allows up to 1%. This table provides a summary of the fund established with the Bethel Board of Finance since 2014.
Awarded Federal & State Grants
This table provides a historical overview of non-competitive federal and state grants received by the district. The grants are targeted for specific programs and purposes based on the type of grant. By Federal law, they do not surplant, but supplement the regular budget.
