Charter School Annual Budgets

  • Charter schools do not charge students tuition- they receive the majority of funding from their students' resident school districts. The amount a charter school receives is based upon a statutory funding formula, which requires tuition rates for both nonspecial and special education students. During the 2020-2021 school year, the per pupil tution paid by the School District of Pittsburgh is $17,898.09 for nonspecial education students and $42,851.39 for special education students.
