Your Committee on Education , to which was referred House Bill 1381 , has had the same under consideration and begs leave to report the same back to the House with the recommendation that said bill be amended as follows:
ADM for a calendar year that is equal to the amount under
section 6.7(c) STEP ONE of this chapter, determine the sum
(i) the school corporation's result under section 6.7(c) STEP ONE of this chapter for the calendar year multiplied by the school corporation's adjusted ADM for the current year; plus
(ii) the amount of the annual decrease in federal aid to impacted areas from the year preceding the ensuing calendar year by three (3) years to the year preceding the ensuing calendar year by two (2) years; plus
(iii) the part of the maximum general fund levy for the year that equals the original amount of the levy imposed by the school corporation to cover the costs of opening a new school facility or reopening an existing facility during the preceding year.
STEP TWO: This STEP applies to a school corporation that is not a charter school. Determine the sum of:
(A) the school corporation's tuition support levy; plus
(B) the school corporation's excise tax revenue for the year that precedes the current year by one (1) year.
STEP THREE: This STEP applies to a charter school. Determine the product of:
(A) the amount determined under section 6.7(c) STEP SEVEN of this chapter for the charter school; multiplied by
(B) thirty-five hundredths (0.35).
STEP FOUR: Determine the difference between:
(A) the STEP ONE amount; minus
(B) the STEP TWO or STEP THREE amount, as applicable.
STEP FIVE: Determine the result of:
(A) the STEP FOUR result; minus
(B) the amount determined under subsection (c).
(b) If the state tuition support determined for a school corporation under this section is negative, the school corporation is not entitled to any state tuition support. In addition, the school corporation's maximum general fund levy under IC 6-1.1-19-1.5 shall be reduced by the amount of the negative result.
(c) The amount to be used under subsection (a) STEP FIVE (B) is the greater of:
(1) zero (0); or
(2) the amount by which the department of education determines the school corporation's state tuition support distribution would be reduced as a result of the enrollment of qualified dependents (as defined in IC 6-3.1-31-8) in a school of choice (as defined in IC 6-3.1-31-11) rather than the school corporation if section 6.6 of this chapter did not apply to the school corporation.
The department of education shall base a determination described in subdivision (2) on an analysis of the effects of IC 6-3.1-31 on the trend of enrollment of eligible pupils and qualified dependents (as defined in IC 6-3.1-31-8) in kindergarten in each attendance area of the school corporation. The department of education shall review the methodology used in the analysis with the budget committee.".
Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
(Reference is to HB 1381 as introduced.)
and when so amended that said bill do pass.
