The Rye Board of Ed says its per pupil cost of $21,953 is among the lowest:
From Board Notes: A chart displaying per pupil costs as of 2012-13 compared Rye with fourteen of its neighboring school districts. The data, provided by the Westchester-Putnam School Boards Association, reveals Rye to be towards the bottom of the list with one of the lowest costs per student at $21,953. To put this into perspective, Bronxville's per pupil cost is $30,000, Harrison's is $27,555, and Blind Brook's is $25,520. Despite an increasing enrollment, Rye's per pupil expense increases have remained lower than the rate of inflation, which was achieved through many efficiencies that have been made throughout the District. The full chart is included in the Superintendent's Recommended Budget presentation.
