How Does OUSD Compare to their Chosen Comparison Districts?
|District||# of students||# Admin > $200k||#Admin > $300k||#Students/ >$200k Admin||UPP %||% Charter Schools||Revenue per Student|
Things to notice:
- Fresno has the highest need students (by UPP) but has 22 fewer high paid execs
- If OUSD had the average number of highest paid execs, they would save nearly $4 million per year
- The two districts with highest numbers of high paid execs have the highest degree of privatization, demonstrated by the number of charter schools
- OUSD receives $2,673 more per student than average for these districts, that is $95 million more PER YEAR that OUSD receives compared to other districts of comparable size
- Not coincidentally, Oakland also has the second highest amount of money spent in School Board elections in California, second only to the largest district (LAUSD – but only half as much per student was spent in that election) and nearly all of that spending (98%) came from outside of Oakland
