FY 2023 (Approved) - Based on the approved School Board Operating Budget and approved by City Council; however, it does not include certain adjustments necessary to compute the FY 2021 (Actual) and FY 2022 (Estimated) local average per pupil expenditures and, therefore, it will affect the comparability of the FY 2023 (Approved) local average per pupil expenditures amount to the FY 2021 (Actual) and FY 2022 (Estimated) amounts.
