DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
1997-98 Policy for State Payments to School Districts for Charter School Students
[27 Pa.B. 4921]
Transitional State funding to school districts for students attending charter public schools during their first year of operation authorized by Act 22 of 1997:
o Regular Student up to $1,800 o Special Education Student up to $3,000
These are first year figures. If funding at this per student level exceeds the $7.5 million allocated for 2 fiscal years, 1997-98 and 1998-99, the amount granted per student will be reduced for the second year pro rata so that the total State funding will not be exceeded.
No transitional funding is available for charter schools that are conversions of operating public schools.
School districts are eligible for transitional funding if one or more of the students attending a Pennsylvania public charter school are residents of the district. Eligible school districts apply for this funding by completing and submitting the PDE-363, ''Calculation of Selected Expenditures Per Average Daily Membership and Application for Temporary Transitional Funding.'' Transitional funding is based on the charter school October 1 enrollment report, PDE-4035 and supplement, PDE-361. Payment to school districts will be made with the December or January unipay system. The Bureau of Budget and Fiscal Management will execute this payment to school districts.
