Please note: this includes the CITYSIDE administrative costs the city claims as part of education funding, which for FY12 was $4,622,410. That is money the city simply states that it spends on the schools' behalf on administrative oversight. That's more than the school side administrative costs (and is not under the control of the School Committee or indeed the Worcester Public Schools).
