|See Allocation Formula.|
|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.
FY 2010-11 also marks the end of the hold harmless provision, which provided funding protection for SELPAs with declining Out-of-Home Care (OHC) population. Consequently, if a SELPA’s 2010-11 OHC funding entitlement is less than it received for the 2009-10 fiscal year, the SELPA shall receive the amount it received for the 2009-10 fiscal year less the full difference.
In the case of OHC funding growth, if a SELPA’s 2010-11 funding entitlement is greater than it received for the 2009-10 fiscal year, the SELPA shall receive the same amount it received for the 2009-10 fiscal year plus the gain. In the case where the total gain amount exceeds the program’s budget appropriation, a proration factor will be applied.
