For those of you that love a good spreadsheet, the Greendale School District compiled a list of data comparing districts throughout southeastern Wisconsin, including cost per student, maximum teacher salaries, and pupil-teacher ratios.
For the most part Muskego-Norway Schools found a home somewhere in the middle for various data. MNSD was slightly above average for enrollment numbers, household income and cost per student.
Here are a few more stats:
- Schools in Muskego recorded the lowest percentage for minority students, tying Kettle Moraine at seven percent.
- Maximum teacher salaries were $75,194; the data did not provide an average as many other districts numbers were not available, but fell just under the average from numbers that were available, at $75,278
- Property values per student in Muskego were $627,711, well below the $705,231 average
- The student-teacher ratio was 17.3, second highest only to Kettle Moraine and Oconomowoc districts, which tied at 17.6
- Local levy percentages varied widely, and an average of 47 percent could have been calculated. Muskego's percentage was 57.3, with Mequon-Thiensville recording a high of 87.3 and Pewaukee's a low of 6.2 percent
- Fund balance, which was cited by many who opposed taxpayer spending on schools, is $34.8 million, which was only second to Wauwatosa's $40.9 million and far above the average of $20 million
- Poverty percentages put Muskego below the average of 22.2 percent, but is still concerning at 13.9 percent.
