Calculation of 1979-80 Revenue Limit for School Districts Using Form K-12   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The county superintendent of schools shall calculate the 1979 80 revenue limit for each school district in the county using Form K-12 and Schedules C D, E, G, 1 and S. Form K-12 shall be completed as follows:

(a) Line A: Report the recomputed K-12 base revenue limit per unit of average daily attendance as shown in Line O of Schedule B (1979-80). This amount shall be reported to two decimal places.

(b) Line B-l: Report the appropriate weighted mean base revenue limit computed pursuant to Section 15372 The weighted mean revenue limits provided on Forms K-12 (P-1) and K-12 (P-2) are an estimate. The weighted mean revenue limits provided on Form K-12(A) shall be the actual weighted mean. For purposes of Line B-1 "ADA" shall be the 1978-79 regular average daily attendance, equal to the attendance in Line N-4 minus the attendance in Line N-2 of Schedule B (1979-80). Use the appropriate weighted mean for the type and size of district as follows:

(1) Line B-1a: For elementary districts with less than 101 ADA.

(2) Line B-1b: For elementary districts with greater than 100 but less than 901 ADA.

(3) Line B-1c: For elementary districts with greater than 900 ADA.

(4) Line B-1d: For high school districts with less than 301 ADA.

(5) Line B-1e: For high school districts with greater than 300 ADA.

(6) Line B-1f For unified districts with less than 1,501 ADA

(7) Line B-1g: For unified districts with greater than 1,500 ADA

(c) Line B-2: Determine the computed factor equal to the appropriate amount in Line B-1 divided by the amount in Line A. Report this amount rounded to four decimal places.

Note that this computed factor may be greater than 1.0000.

(d) Line B-3: Computation of the annual inflation adjustment. The adjustment for all districts is based on 8.6 percent (.086) times the weighted mean revenue limit of a unified district with ADA greater than 1,500 ADA (estimated to $1,476). $1,476 times .086 = $127 when rounded to whole dollars. The accuracy of the $127/per ADA will not be totally known until the final data to determine the $1,476 are available in the summer of 1980.

(e) Line B-4: Report a permanent decrease in the revenue limit per unit of average daily attendance which is required by Education Code Section 42244.7 when special education programs are transferred from a school district to a county superintendent of schools pursuant to Section 1710 of the Education Code. The amount of reduction shall be equal to the amount of excess cost which the district expended from its revenue limit, exclusive of income from federal sources or tuition for such programs in 1978-79, divided by the average daily attendance in 1979-80 as shown on Line C-1 of this form. This computed amount represents a decrease to the revenue limit and so shall be shown in brackets () and shall be reported to two decimal places.

(f) Line B-5: Report a permanent increase to the revenue limit authorized by Section 42237.5 of the Education Code and calculated pursuant to Section 15387. Add the amounts shown in Line I of Schedules J (1979-80) for the feeder elementary districts, and divide this sum by the high school ADA, as shown on Line C-1 1979-80 Form K-12.

(g) Line B-6: Report the 1979-80 adjusted revenue limit per unit of ADA, equal to the sum of the amounts in Lines A, B-3, B-4, and B-5. This result shall be reported to two decimal places.

(h) Line C-1: Report the 1979-80 second principal apportionment revenue limit ADA On forms K-12(P-1) and K-12(P-2) use the estimated second principal ADA, and on Form K-12(A) use the actual second principal ADA.

(1) Line C-1A Report the regular average daily attendance reduced by class-size penalties. Exclude summer school ADA and adult ADA attendance in both adult and regional occupational programs and centers. Do include concurrently enrolled pupils in ROP/C and adult programs Also count ADA in summer programs for the substantially handicapped, as this is regular attendance and not summer school attendance.

(2) Line C-1b: Report the 1979-80 actual ADA in summer school programs for graduating seniors times .6, rounding the result to the nearest whole number. If the district had a 1979-80 summer program for graduating seniors and this result, prior to rounding is less than one, report one ADA. ADA in summer school programs shall be credited only for those high school seniors who actually graduated by the end of September 1979.

(3) Line C-1: Report the sum of the ADA shown on Lines C-1a and C-1b.

(i) Line C-2 Compute the 1979-80 adjusted revenue limit, equal to the amount in Line B-6 times the ADA in Line C-l. Round the result to the nearest whole dollar.

(j) Line C-3: Report the increase in revenue limit because of declining enrollment authorized by Sections 42239 and 42239.5 of the Education Code and calculated pursuant to Section 15388 of this Article. Report the amount shown in Line K of Schedule C (1979-80).

(k) Line C-4: Report any gain or loss from Interdistrict Attendance Agreements Authorized by Education Code Section 46605(d).

(l) Under an interdistrict attendance agreement where tuition is paid, as authorized by this Education Code Section, the district in which the pupil lives shall claim the ADA and shall pay a tuition to the district in which the pupil attends. Pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 46605 of the Education Code, the district of residence shall reduce its revenue limit by the total excess, if any, which is determined by subtracting the district of residence's revenue limit per unit of average daily attendance as reported in Line B-6 of Form K-12 (1979-80) multiplied by the total interdistrict average daily attendance from the total tuition to be paid to the districts of attendance. Also, the district of residence may increase its revenue limit by the total excess, if any, which is determined by subtracting the total tuition to be paid to districts of attendance from the district of residence's revenue limit per unit of average daily attendance as reported in Line B-6 of Form K-12 (1979-80) multiplied by the total interdistrict average daily attendance.

(a) If the district of attendance claims the units of average daily attendance under an inter-district attendance agreement, and no tuition is collected, the adjustment on Line C-4 shall not be allowed.

(1) Line C-5: Report the increase in the revenue limit to reflect additional costs incurred by the district for unemployment insurance pursuant to Education Code Section 42241.7. This section of the Education Code allows the district to increase its revenue limit by an amount equal to the expenditures to be incurred by the district in 1979-80 for the costs of unemployment insurance for certificated personnel minus the costs of unemployment insurance for certificated personnel in 1975-76 (the base year for this calculation).

(m) Line C-6: Report the increase in the revenue limit to reflect mandated costs imposed by final court orders, federal statutes, or initiative enactments after January 1, 1978, as authorized by Education Code Section 42243.6.

Note: Prior-year adjustments pursuant to Section 42245 of the Education Code shall not be a revenue limit adjustment in the 1979-80 fiscal year and so Line C-10a shall not be used.
