arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Under the rules and regulations established by the State Board of Education, school districts receiving entitlements for the 1979-80 year and thereafter under this chapter shall develop and submit to the Department of Education for approval an intra-district allocation plan for distribution of impact aid to schools with high concentrations of pupils in need. Such intra-district allocation plans shall include, but not be limited to:

(a) A method for determining the eligibility of schools to receive impact aid based on the following factors which shall be given equal weight in the allocation of funds:

(1) The number or percentage of limited- and non-English-speaking youth at individual school sites.

(2) The number or percentage of students from low-income families at individual school sites as identified using data sources such as Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Federal Free Lunch, assessed value of single family residences, and census data.

(3) The number or percentage of students with low academic achievement at individual school sites. In the development of its allocation plan, an eligible district may employ, other factors unique to the district which further identify numbers or concentrations of pupils in need of impact aid at individual school sites.

(b) A method for determining the minimum and maximum levels of service expressed as an average amount per pupil, for schools scheduled to receive impact aid.
