The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) website contains a great deal of information and data for school district budgets.
The School District Revenues and Expenditures in Washington State spreadsheet provides various per-student revenues and expenditures by school district for the State. The focused data points in this spreadsheet are meant to be interactive, and users may limit what they see on the data page, and what is reflected on the corresponding chart pages, by clicking on the drop down arrow at the top of each column on the data page.  Instructions on how to filter the data are provided in the spreadsheet on the "Instructions" tab. Footnotes are available on the "Footnotes" tab.  This data is maintained by OSPI's School Apportionment and Financial Services division.
