With school districts and towns across the state finalizing their education budget proposals, Patch is looking at per-student spending district-by-district.

This week, we’re counting down the 16 districts with the lowest spending per pupil for the 2012-13 academic year.

The numbers — compiled by the State Department of Education (SDE) Bureau of Grants Management — compare the net expenditures for all 219 school districts against the average enrollment (membership) to determine spending per pupil.

This might be more helpful if we couold see a lowest spending versus test score performance comparison. I would like to see the value of the dollars spent - measure school performance by how much is spent. I bet Granby is in that mix.
