HOW DYSART IS FUNDED
The Dysart Unified School District receives its funding from three main sources: the State of Arizona (47%), the Federal Government (10%), and other local revenues, which include property taxes (43%).
Federal money is designated for such things as special education services and to support the learning needs of students from low-income families using Title I funds. That money can only be used for specifically allowed purposes according to grant requirements to support those programs.
State and local funding is broken down into two primary sources of funding: Maintenance & Operations (M&O), and Capital. The M&O Fund is the District’s operating fund which accounts for necessary operating expenses such as salaries, supplies, transportation services, and utilities. Capital expenses are durable items such as buildings, furniture, equipment, technology, textbooks, and buses.
