The price of education: Figures on Lawrence schools, salaries, cost per student.
The Lawrence school district presented how much it costs to operate each elementary school to the school board as part of a budget study session. The chart includes select figures on salaries, number of teachers and students, and the cost to educate one student at each school.
* Some schools have more veteran teachers on staff, which can cause both cost per student and teacher salary figures to go up. But if a school with veteran teachers were to close, those teachers would be moved to another school.
