The bar-graph shows the per-pupil funded revenue limits for the average unified school district during 2007-08 and 2009-10.
In normal circumstances, the average unified district’s revenue limit funding would have included COLAs, increasing funding from $5,821 per pupil in 2007–08 to $6,411 in 2009–10. Instead, funding cuts in 2008–09 and 2009–10 reduced revenue limit funding for the average unified district to $4,984 per pupil—14% less than in 2007–08. Cuts in high school and elementary districts were similar.
