Nebraska Revised Statute 79-10,145

Chapter 79 Section 10,145

79-10,145.

Learning community transition aid; calculation.

(1) For school fiscal year 2017-18, the department shall, based on data for school fiscal year 2016-17, calculate the amount of learning community transition aid, if any, to be paid from the Nebraska Education Improvement Fund to each school district that is a member of a learning community which levied a common levy for member school districts prior to school fiscal year 2017-18. Learning community transition aid for each such district shall be calculated by:

(a) Recalculating the 2016-17 state aid for each member school district as if the district were not a member of the learning community using the same data that was used in the certification pursuant to section 79-1022 to determine the calculated 2016-17 individual state aid for each member school district;

(b) Multiplying the aggregate taxable valuation for all member school districts for the 2016 tax year by the ratio of ninety-five cents per one hundred dollars of taxable valuation and multiplying the result by ninety-nine percent to determine the calculated 2016-17 common levy receipts;

(c) Dividing the calculated 2016-17 common levy receipts among member school districts proportionally based on the difference of the formula need calculated pursuant to section 79-1007.11 minus the sum of the state aid certified pursuant to section 79-1022 and the other actual receipts included in local system formula resources pursuant to section 79-1018.01 for the 2016-17 school fiscal year to determine the district share of the calculated 2016-17 common levy receipts for each member district;

(d) Adding the district share of the calculated 2016-17 common levy receipts to the state aid certified pursuant to section 79-1022 for the 2016-17 school fiscal year to determine the calculated 2016-17 common levy resources total for each member school district;

(e) Multiplying the taxable valuation for each member school district for the 2016 tax year by the ratio of ninety-five cents per one hundred dollars of taxable valuation and multiplying the result by ninety-nine percent to determine the calculated 2016-17 individual levy receipts for each member school district;

(f) Adding the calculated 2016-17 individual levy receipts to the calculated 2016-17 individual state aid to determine the calculated 2016-17 individual district resources total for each member school district; and

(g) Multiplying the difference of the calculated 2016-17 common levy resources total minus both the calculated 2016-17 individual district resources total and the community achievement plan aid calculated for school fiscal year 2017-18 pursuant to section 79-1005 for each member school district by fifty percent to equal the 2017-18 learning community transition aid for each member school district for which the calculated common levy resources total is greater than such sum of the calculated individual district resources total plus the community achievement plan aid.

(2) For school fiscal year 2018-19, the department shall, based on data for school fiscal year 2017-18, calculate the amount of learning community transition aid, if any, to be paid from the Nebraska Education Improvement Fund to each school district that is a member of a learning community which levied a common levy for member school districts prior to school fiscal year 2017-18. Learning community transition aid for each such district shall be calculated by:

(a) Recalculating the 2017-18 state aid for each member school district as if the district continued to be subject to a learning community general fund common levy and without any poverty allowance adjustment pursuant to section 79-1007.06 or community achievement aid pursuant to section 79-1005 using the same data that was used in the certification pursuant to section 79-1022 to determine the calculated 2017-18 common levy formula need and calculated 2017-18 common levy state aid for each member school district;

(b) Multiplying the aggregate taxable valuation for all member school districts for the 2017 tax year by the ratio of ninety-five cents per one hundred dollars of taxable valuation and multiplying the result by ninety-nine percent to determine the calculated 2017-18 common levy receipts;

(c) Dividing the calculated 2017-18 common levy receipts among member school districts proportionally based on the difference of the calculated common levy formula need minus the sum of the calculated 2017-18 common levy state aid and the other actual receipts included in local system formula resources pursuant to section 79-1018.01 for the 2017-18 school fiscal year to determine the district share of the calculated 2017-18 common levy receipts for each member district;

(d) Adding the district share of the calculated 2017-18 common levy receipts to the calculated 2017-18 common levy state aid to determine the calculated 2017-18 common levy resources total for each member school district;

(e) Multiplying the taxable valuation for each member school district for the 2017 tax year by the ratio of ninety-five cents per one hundred dollars of taxable valuation and multiplying the result by ninety-nine percent to determine the calculated 2017-18 individual levy receipts for each member school district;

(f) Adding the calculated 2017-18 individual levy receipts to the state aid certified pursuant to section 79-1022 for school fiscal year 2017-18 to determine the calculated 2017-18 individual district resources total for each member school district; and

(g) Multiplying the difference between the calculated 2017-18 common levy resources total minus the calculated 2017-18 individual district resources total for each member school district by twenty-five percent to equal the 2018-19 learning community transition aid for each member school district for which the calculated common levy resources total is greater than the calculated individual district resources total.

(3) Learning community transition aid shall not be considered in the calculation of formula resources pursuant to section 79-1017.01.
