Allocation Formula The funding rate was determined by dividing $25 million by the total ADA, excluding attendance for regional occupational centers and programs, adult education, and programs operated by the county superintendents of schools, for all pupils in kindergarten through grade twelve in all school districts for the second principal apportionment for the 1990-00 fiscal year. Each school district's allocation equals this per pupil amount (approximately $4.51) times the district's ADA for the second principal apportionment for the 1999-00 fiscal year.
