The main reason for low district revenue is that other districts have more commercial and industrial taxable property, according to district Finance Director Aaron Bushberger.

The district ranked 34th of 48 in total operating expenses. District-level administration ranked 46th of 48 districts. Regular instruction ranked 21st. Pupil support services ranked sixth. Operations and maintenance ranked 38th.
