This study examines 1,037 independent school districts in Texas in order to analyze the relative importance of factors influencing privatization of non-instructional services. After a review of the literature, district economic health, urbanization, and political and administrative stability emerged as the three main areas affecting privatization expenditure levels. Hypotheses were developed with the independent variables for each of these areas of influence. Each of the hypotheses were then tested with multiple regression analysis for the major categories of privatized non-instructional services: professional services, tuition and transfer payments, Education Service Center services, maintenance and repairs, utilities, rental and operating leases, and miscellaneous services. District economic health was shown to have the greatest influence on the seven categories of privatization expenditures, and urbanization factors exerted minimal influence. Political and administrative stability did not effect privatization expenditures
