|Allocation Formula||This apportionment provides funding for pupils residing in group homes and six other types of facilities located within each SELPA's geographic boundary. Funding for the group home (GH) is based on the number of beds (capacity) multiplied by the funding rate for the GH's rate classification level (RCL), ranging from level 3 to level 14, depending on the level of severity. In addition, funding for the six facility types (foster family home, foster family agency, small family home, community care facility, intermediate care facility, and skilled nursing facility) is based on the number of pupils at each facility multiplied by its RCL rate.
The OHC funding model provides a phase-in for SELPAs entitled to more funding under the new funding model and a phase-out funding protection for those SELPAs who are losing funding.
The phase-out percentage for fiscal year 2007-08 is 25 percent (2nd of 5 years).
