Allocation Formula The entitlement for the infant program equals the sum of all numbers of instructional personnel service units a SELPA allocates to its local educational agencies (LEAs) or LEA(s) of another SELPA, multiplied by the base rate of the type of classroom setting the instructional personnel service unit is served, plus the cost of aide for each type of class. A 1.565% COLA increase is applied to the calculation for the 2013-14 fiscal year. The three classroom settings which infants are served include: 1) Special Day Class (SDC): Severe/Non-Severe 2) Resource Specialist Program (RSP) 3) Designated Instruction and Service (DIS)
