Allocation Formula Funding for 2008-09 consists of several components:

(1) Base funding is equal to the 2008-09 base revenue limit per average daily attendance (ADA) multiplied by the lesser of 2007-08 funded or the 2008-09 Annual ADA reported through the Principal Apportionment software. No COLA was appropriated for this program; therefore the base revenue limit per ADA for 2008-09 will be the prior year weighed average base revenue limit. The 2007-08 funded ADA is the base ADA plus the average growth and excess ADA;

(2) The funds appropriated for this program reflect a reduction to the base funding of 0.55 percent for a statewide decline in 11th and 12th grade ADA. If sufficient funding is not available, a proration factor will be applied to the base funding; and

(3) No growth fund was appropriated for allowable growth ADA.
