State Special Purpose Funding:  14%
This piece of the pie also comes from the state but it must be spent on specific programs, like transportation.  This portion can only be spent on the special programs it is designated for.  Total state funding (General + Special) provides just 64% of the districts funding.  This is down from 75% in 1998.

The second-largest piece of the pie comes from the local levy.  This is nearly 1/4 of the total operating budget for the district.
