The median per-pupil cost of extracurricular activities in New Jersey public school districts that serve high school only -- ninth through twelfth grade -- was $836 for the 2009-2010 school year.

That, of course, is before this year's massive budget cuts. The average in those same districts was $790 per pupil. The average statewide for all types of school districts was $200 per student, but that includes grades K-8, which have fewer sport programs. The K-12 district median was $325.

The highest per-pupil extracurricular budgeted spending last year was $1,339, in Hunterdon’s Delaware Valley Regional district. Right behind Hunterdon was Henry Hudson Regional district in Monmouth County, at $1,250, and Morris County Hanover Park Regional, at $1,245.
