Q. How much money does Brunswick County provide, per student, to (1) those educated by Brunswick County Board of Education and (2) those educated outside of the Brunswick County School system, i.e. home schooled, charter schooled, private schooled? Also, what is the total dollars provided for education and what percent of the county tax revenue is that?

A.  Brunswick County Schools received $33,437,869 from the county this year, said Freyja Cahill, executive director of finance for the school district. That’s about 21 percent of the county’s total budget of $157,577,162

The county contributed $2,526.89 per student this year. Overall, pulling funds from county, state and federal funds, the school district spent $8,518.75 per student this year.

The district transferred $1,786,241.63 to charter schools last year.

The amount Brunswick County Schools sends to charter schools is recalculated every year based on enrollment numbers, Cahill said.


Why isn’t there a “school zone” in front of the Town Creek Elementary School on U.S. 17 in Brunswick County?

What school systems in the area are doing random drug testing on school personnel?
