Focus school and program allowance; calculation.

For school fiscal year 2008-09 and each school fiscal year thereafter, the department shall determine the focus school and program allowance for each school district in a learning community which submits the information required for the calculation on a form prescribed by the department on or before October 15 of the school fiscal year preceding the school fiscal year for which aid is being calculated. Such form may require confirmation from a learning community official that the focus school or program has been approved by the learning community coordinating council for the school fiscal year for which the allowance is being calculated. The focus school and program allowance for each school district in a learning community shall equal the sum of the allowances calculated pursuant to this section for each focus school and focus program operated by the school district for the school fiscal year for which aid is being calculated.

For the school fiscal year containing the majority of the first school year that a school or program will be in operation as a focus school or program approved by the learning community and meeting the requirements of section 79-769, the focus school and program allowance for such focus school or program shall equal the statewide average general fund operating expenditures per formula student multiplied by 0.10 then multiplied by the estimated number of students who will be participating in the focus school or program as reported on the form required pursuant to this section.

For the school fiscal year containing the majority of the second school year that a school or program will be in operation as a focus school or program approved by the learning community and meeting the requirements of section 79-769, the focus school and program allowance for such focus school or program shall equal the statewide average general fund operating expenditures per formula student multiplied by 0.10 then multiplied by (1) for state aid certified pursuant to section 79-1022, the difference of the product of two multiplied by the number of students participating in the focus school or program as reported on the fall membership report from the school fiscal year immediately preceding the school fiscal year in which the aid is to be paid minus the estimated number of students used in the certification of state aid pursuant to section 79-1022 for the school fiscal year immediately preceding the school fiscal year in which the aid is to be paid and (2) for the final calculation of state aid pursuant to section 79-1065, the difference of the product of two multiplied by the number of students participating in the focus school or program as reported on the annual statistical summary report from the school fiscal year immediately preceding the school fiscal year in which the aid was paid minus the estimated number of students used in the final calculation of state aid pursuant to section 79-1065 for the school fiscal year immediately preceding the school fiscal year in which the aid is to be paid.

For the school fiscal year containing the majority of the third school year that a school or program will be in operation as a focus school or program approved by the learning community and meeting the requirements of section 79-769 and each school fiscal year thereafter, the focus school and program allowance for such focus school or program shall equal the statewide average general fund operating expenditures per formula student multiplied by 0.10 then multiplied by the number of students participating in the focus school or program as reported on the fall membership report from the school fiscal year immediately preceding the school fiscal year in which the aid is to be paid for state aid certified pursuant to section 79-1022 and as reported on the annual statistical summary report from the school fiscal year immediately preceding the school fiscal year in which the aid was paid for the final calculation of state aid pursuant to section 79-1065.
