The Open Book$ Project exists to give you a clear look at how taxpayers' dollars are being spent on K-12 education throughout the state. A coalition of concerned citizens and educators, powered by the Chalkboard Project, listened to Oregonians around the state ask for transparency and more details about how money is spent on schools in Oregon. Open Book$ answers those questions.
We invite you to learn more about the details of how our district spends money. When you look at this data, please notice our district spends 72% on teaching and student resources. This is above the state average of 69% for the same category. We work hard to ensure our students are directly receiving the benefit of our available annual resources. We take great pride in the high quality, innovative, and creative teaching and learning that occurs in our schools.
Dallas School District educates 3,110 students in three elementary schools, one middle school, one high school and one alternative high school. We have one hundred fifty-nine teachers, one hundred thirty-one support staff and twelve administrators who serve our students.
