Thank you for visiting the School Finances portion of the PDE website.  On these pages, you'll find information in three major areas:

Education Budget

Includes descriptions and data files related to the current proposed or enacted State budget.

Financial Data

Includes finance-related data such as aid ratios, ADM, and real estate tax rates; historical Annual Financial Report data and state subsidy files.


Includes instructions and other information related to the reporting of required data to PDE, such as Annual Financial Reports, General Fund Budgets, PIMS-Child Accounting data, Pupil Transportation.

Other information includes accounting guidance to Pennsylvania LEAs such as the Chart of Accounts.

To assist with information required to be reported to PDE and the associated deadlines, PDE publishes a comprehensive Data Reporting Calendar (showing both PIMS and non-PIMS information).
