TRENTON – Total spending per student in New Jersey's public schools increased 7.1% during the 2020-21 school year, according to the annual spending report published by the state.

The statewide average was $24,543.

That measurement is more than the budgetary cost per pupil that districts advertise when publishing their user-friendly budget each spring. The budgetary total excludes costs that are not directly comparable between districts such as transportation, debt for school construction and tuition payments for out-of-district programs.

The statewide average budgetary cost per pupil was $18,208 in 2021-22, up from actual budgetary spending of $16,823 in 2020-21. But again, that total exempts spending such as lunch programs and pension payments the state makes on schools' behalf.

The latest Taxpayers' Guide to Education Spending was published by the state Department of Education this past summer, though it summarizes spending data from the 2020-21 budgets – so not last school year at this point, but the one before.

Districts with the highest spending

The seven districts in New Jersey with the highest per-pupil spending were special services districts, which isn't surprising given the more intensive needs of their students with special needs and significant disabilities.

After that, the highest overall spending took place in Lakewood, where it totaled $55,214 per pupil overall, up from $36,241 in 2019-20.

Nine of the next 10 highest-spending districts were also in Shore counties:

— North Wildwood

— Brigantine

— Avalon

— Keansburg

— Asbury Park

— Long Beach Island

— Deal

— Margate

— Henry Hudson Regional, which serves Atlantic Highlands and Highlands.

The only non-Shore district among the top spenders was Hoboken.

Districts with lowest spending

The lowest per-pupil spending was generally recorded in charter schools, including 50 of the lowest 59. The lowest-spending, non-charter districts generally include K-8 school districts, including Estell Manor in Atlantic County spending the least at $13,989, with a few K-6 and vocational schools included as well.

The K-12 district spending the least was Palisades Park, at $18,663 per pupil.

Below are the full lists including every school district in the state. They are grouped by their grade structure and enrollment group, rather than by county, as it is considered fairer to compare large K-12 districts with each other rather than, say, a smaller K-8 district that doesn't incur the added expense of operating a high school.
