The School Operations fund is specific to all general school operations. These operational costs include: Salary and Wages, Employee Benefits, Purchased Services, Supplies, Debt Service/Insurance and Capital Expense. Therefore, the total expense allocated to the school operations fund provides the most realistic costs to educate a student in MPS.
However, a few of the individual costs included in the purchased services section are classified as pass-through. Pass-through costs are attributed to revenues received by MPS and paid out to other entities.
