(a) (1) For the purposes of this act, the total foundation aid for any school district formed by consolidation in accordance with the statutory provisions contained in article 7 of chapter 72 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, shall be computed by the state board by determining the amount of the total foundation aid each of the former school districts that comprise the consolidated school district received in the school year preceding the date the consolidation was completed, and calculating the sum of such amounts. The sum is the total foundation aid of the consolidated school district for the school year in which the consolidation was completed.

(2) If any of the former school districts had an enrollment of less than 150 students in the school year preceding the consolidation, the total foundation aid of the newly consolidated school district for the two school years following the school year in which the consolidation was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the consolidation was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(3) If all of the former school districts had an enrollment of at least 150 students, but any had less than 200 students in the school year preceding the consolidation, the total foundation aid of the newly consolidated school district for the three school years following the school year in which the consolidation was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the consolidation was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(4) If all of the former school districts had an enrollment of 200 or more students in the school year preceding the consolidation, the total foundation aid of the newly consolidated school district for the four school years following the school year in which the consolidation was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the consolidation was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(5) If the consolidation involved the consolidation of three or more school districts, regardless of the number of students enrolled in the school districts, the total foundation aid of the newly consolidated school district for the four school years following the school year in which the consolidation was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the consolidation was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(b) (1) The provisions of this subsection shall apply to school districts that have been enlarged by the attachment of territory pursuant to the procedure established in article 6 of chapter 72 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto.

(2) For the purposes of this act, the total foundation aid for any school district to which this subsection applies shall be computed by the state board of education as follows: (A) Determine the amount of the total foundation aid each of the former school districts that comprise the enlarged school district received in the school year preceding the date the attachment was completed; and (B) add the amounts determined under subparagraph (A). The sum is the total foundation aid of the enlarged school district for the school year in which the attachment is completed.

(3) If any of the former school districts had an enrollment of less than 150 students in the school year preceding the attachment, the total foundation aid of the enlarged school district for the two school years following the school year in which the attachment was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the attachment was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(4) If all of the former school districts had an enrollment of at least 150 students, but any had less than 200 students in the school year preceding the attachment, the total foundation aid of the enlarged school district for the three school years following the school year in which the attachment was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the attachment was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(5) If all of the former school districts had an enrollment of 200 or more students in the school year preceding the attachment, the total foundation aid of the enlarged school district for the four school years following the school year in which the attachment was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the attachment was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(6) If three or more school districts, regardless of the number of students enrolled in the school districts, are disorganized and attached to a single school district, the total foundation aid of the enlarged school district for the four school years following the school year in which the attachment was completed shall be the greater of: (A) The amount received in the school year in which the attachment was completed; or (B) the amount the school district would receive under this act.

(7) Except as specifically provided by this paragraph for the allocation of total foundation aid among school districts, the provisions of paragraphs (1) through (6) shall be applicable to school districts to which this paragraph applies. If a school district is disorganized in accordance with article 6 of chapter 72 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, and the territory of such school district is attached to more than one school district, the total foundation aid for each school district to which any territory from the disorganized school district is attached, shall be computed by the state board as follows: (A) Determine the amount of total foundation aid received by the former school district in the school year preceding the date the disorganization and attachment was completed; (B) determine the amount of total foundation aid received by the enlarged school district in the school year preceding the date the disorganization and attachment was completed; (C) determine the assessed valuation of the former school district in the school year preceding the date the disorganization and attachment was completed; (D) determine the assessed valuation of the territory attached to each enlarged school district; (E) allocate the amount of the total foundation aid received by the former school district in the school year preceding the date the disorganization and attachment was completed to each of the enlarged school districts in the same proportion the assessed valuation of the territory attached to each school district bears to the assessed valuation of the former school district; and (F) add the amounts determined under subparagraphs (B) and (E). The sum is the total foundation aid of the enlarged school district for the school year in which the attachment is completed.
