BCTF Research Report

SECTION V
2005-EF-03

Locally-generated revenue, by district,
1998–99 and 2003–04

by Anne Field, BCTF Research Department

This report allows for comparisons between school districts and over time of revenue generated beyond government grants to school districts. It shows dramatic and growing disparities in resources available in different districts.

Table 1 shows districts’ locally-generated revenue as a percentage of total district operating funds, for both 1998–99 and 2003–04.
Total operating revenue, from Schedule A1 in district audited financial statements, is the district revenue from all sources, including federal and provincial grants, donations, and other fees and revenue.
Total local revenue, from Schedule A2, is comprised of income from other fees and revenue, typically including Summer school fees, Continuing education fees, Offshore tuition fees, Instructional cafeteria revenue, Central stores, Miscellaneous, Rentals and leases, and Investment income. Fees received from Local Education Agreements/direct funding from First Nations, and from Other School Districts/Education Authorities are excluded.
Table 2 shows locally-generated revenue on a per-student basis, by district, using the total local revenue from Table 1 and full-time equivalent (FTE) student numbers from Ministry Standard Report 2077. Years shown are 1998–99 and 2003–04.
