The current expense of education includes the following Department of Education account codes and descriptions:
|1000||Certified salaries||Teacher, librarian, administrator, and other salaries|
|2000||Classified salaries||Teacher aide, maintenance, clerical, and other salaries|
|3000||Employee benefits||Health, workers compensation, and other benefits (excludes retirement and fringe benefits for retired persons)|
