Allocation Formula Of the $15,096,000 budget appropriation, $0 was provided for a cost-of-living adjustment and growth.

Funding for 2017-18 is equal to the 2007-08 rate per average daily attendance (ADA) multiplied by the 2016-17 funded ADA. Funding distributed to each LEA for reimbursement of services provided in the 2016-17 fiscal year for the Adults in Correctional Facilities Program shall be limited to the amount received by the agency for services provided in the 2015-16 fiscal year. Increased by the percentage change determined and provided pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) of Section 42238.02 of the Education Code for the 2016-17 fiscal year. Funded ADA is the lesser of the reported 2016-17 Annual ADA or the LEAs' ADA cap for 2016-17. The 2016-17 cap for LEAs with 20 units or less of ADA in 2015-16 is equal to the LEA's 2015-16 ADA plus 20 ADA for growth. The cap for LEAs with more than 20 units of ADA in 2015-16 is the ADA cap for the 2015-16 plus two and one-half percent for growth.

If growth funds are insufficient, an adjustment will be made to 2015-16 per-pupil growth rates.
