Allocation Formula Funding is based on prior year second period (P-2) classroom-based TK/K-6 average daily attendance (ADA) and prior year P-2 unduplicated pupil percentage (UPP). Pursuant to EC Section 43502(b) added by Senate Bill (SB) 98, except for 2020-21 newly operational charter schools and continuing LEAs that were eligible for a growth apportionment calculation pursuant to EC Section 43505(b)(2) added by SB 820, the 2020-21 ADA equals the 2019-20 reported ADA, adjusted pursuant to EC sections 43502(b)(2) through (b)(4). ADA for newly operational charter schools and LEAs eligible to receive a growth apportionment in 2020-21 equals the ADA calculated pursuant to EC Sections 43505(a)(1) and 43505(b)(2), respectively. Nonclassroom-based ADA, including traditional and course based independent study ADA, is excluded. Eligible LEAs with prior year UPP equal to or greater than 80.00 percent receive $1,170 per classroom-based TK/K-6 ADA multiplied by UPP. Eligible LEAs with prior year UPP equal to or less than 79.99 percent receive funding at a rate per classroom-based TK/K-6 ADA multiplied by the UPP that will be calculated based on the remaining funds available in the appropriation.
