Summary:

This bill provides that the supplemental revenue funds allocated to school administrative units by the Commissioner of Education from the Fund to Advance Public Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education must be distributed proportionally based on the average October and April pupil enrollment counts for that fiscal year. The bill requires that every school administrative unit receives the same amount of supplemental state revenue contribution funds per pupil regardless of the local cost share expectation calculated under the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act. This bill also repeals the authorization for the Department of Education to use the fund for administrative costs.
