The Chico Unified School District is made up of 12,959 students housed in twenty-two school sites covering 1.2 million sq. ft., which are supported by over 1,800 permanent, part-time and substitute employees. In this mission, the District annually spends approximately $105.5 million general fund dollars made up of $70.1 million unrestricted, $6.7 million Federal, $18.7 million State and $1.1 million local. Of the unrestricted and local dollars, $24.7 million comes from Local Property taxes.
