Allocation Formula Funding for 2007-08 consists of several components:

(1) Base funding is equal to the 2007-08 rate per average daily attendance (ADA) multiplied by the lesser of 2006-07 funded or the 2007-08 Annual ADA reported through the Principal Apportionment software. The rate per ADA is the 2006-07 average rate increased by the 2007-08 cost-of-living adjustment. The 2006-07 funded ADA is the base ADA plus the average growth and excess ADA;

(2) Growth funding is equal to the 2007-08 statewide average rate per growth ADA multiplied by the lesser of 2007-08 share of growth ADA allowed or the actual growth ADA. The actual growth ADA is the difference between the reported 2007-08 ADA and 2006-07 funded ADA. The statewide average rate per growth ADA is the 2006-07 rate increased by the 2007-08 cost-of-living adjustment; and

3) Excess funding is equal to the 2007-08 rate per excess ADA multiplied by excess ADA. The rate per excess ADA is determined based on funding availability after allocating base and growth ADA funding divided by the number of excess ADA.
