Funding Source

A codeset value indicating the person, group, or organizational entity paying for a student's educational expenditures. These expenditures are typically paid by the student's resident district by operating a school, paying tuition, or paying union assessments. However, a student's expenses may be covered by an alternative agreement between the school board and another party. The school district may assume the responsibility for a non-resident, non-member student or the school district may be given funding to pay for that student's educational expenses.


This is set on the StudentEducationOrganizationResponsibilityAssociations.responsibilityDescriptor.

This descriptor set is related to ADMINSTAT, as the responsibilityDescriptor contains both codesets. A student should have two rows, in this resource, one for FUNDSOURCE and one for ADMINSTAT.
