arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) As a condition of receipt of an apportionment from the program, a consortium shall approve a distribution schedule that includes both of the following:

(1) The amount of funds to be distributed to each member of the consortium for that fiscal year.

(2) A narrative justifying how the planned allocations are consistent with the adult education plan.

(b) (1) For any fiscal year for which the chancellor and the Superintendent allocate an amount of funds to the consortium greater than the amount allocated in the prior fiscal year, the amount of funds to be distributed to a member of that consortium shall be equal to or greater than the amount distributed in the prior fiscal year, unless the consortium makes at least one of the following findings related to the member for which the distribution would be reduced:

(A) The member no longer wishes to provide services consistent with the adult education plan.

(B) The member cannot provide services that address the needs identified in the adult education plan.

(C) The member has been consistently ineffective in providing services that address the needs identified in the adult education plan and reasonable interventions have not resulted in improvements.

(2) For any year for which the chancellor and the Superintendent allocate an amount of funds to the consortium less than the amount allocated in the prior year, the amount of funds to be distributed to a member of that consortium shall not be reduced by a percentage greater than the percentage by which the total amount of funds allocated to the consortium decreased, unless the consortium makes at least one of the following findings related to the member for which the distribution would be reduced further:

(A) The member no longer wishes to provide services consistent with the adult education plan.

(B) The member cannot provide services that address the needs identified in the adult education plan.

(C) The member has been ineffective in providing services that address the needs identified in the adult education plan and reasonable interventions have not resulted in improvements.

(c) A distribution schedule shall also include preliminary projections of the amount of funds that would be distributed to each member of the consortium in each of the subsequent two fiscal years. The preliminary projections shall not constitute a binding commitment of funds.
