Budget Data:

Figure 1:  Yarmouth School enrollment has increased more than 13% since 2011, with nearly a 5% increase coming in the (2015-16) school year.

Figure 2:  Per pupil expenditures have remained relatively flat over the same time period, and are actually lower in 2016 than they were in 2010.

Figure 3:  State aid (General Purpose Aid, or GPA) to Yarmouth Schools has increased dramatically in recent years, due to increased enrollment.

Figure 4:  The combined impact of increased enrollment and increased state aid to Yarmouth is that the local per pupil commitment to education has decreased significantly in recent years.  In this figure, the local per pupil commitment is signified by the red markers.  The blue markers correspond with the total money spent per pupil, as shown in Figure 2, above.  The difference between the two in each year is the state aid.

Figure 5:  Fiscal Year 2016 is the last year for which the Department of Education has audited statistics.  This table shows a comparison of total per pupil expenditures among nine of the higher performing districts of Cumberland and York Counties.    As seen here, Yarmouth is now below the average among these nine districts.
