Becoming a Subscriber: K-12 Schools
We have three levels of K-12 School classification: Schools I, Schools II, and Schools III. ARTstor uses the following information to determine a K-12 school's classification:
- Per-pupil expenditure (PPX), based on total operating budget for public schools or annual tuition for independent schools
- Student full-time enrollment (FTE) at the school
The following tables provide the guidelines we use to assign a "score" for classification:
|Full-Time Enrollment||FTE Score|
|800 and above||3|
|Per-Pupil Expenditure (in US dollars)||PPX|
|$15,000 and above||3|
|Less than $10,000||1|
Classification is based on the sum of the FTE score and the PPX score:
|Total Score||ARTstor Classification|
ARTstor Subscription for School Districts and Groups
Because school districts and groups in the K-12 community vary widely in their organization, we will need to discuss ARTstor subscription for these institutions on a case-by-case basis. Please email us for more information.
