72-6483. Supplemental general state aid; determination; distribution. (a) For school year 2016-2017, each school district that has adopted a local option budget is eligible to receive an amount of supplemental general state aid. A school district's eligibility to receive supplemental general state aid shall be determined by the state board as provided in this subsection. The state board of education shall:

(1) Determine the amount of the assessed valuation per pupil (AVPP) of each school district in the state and round such amount to the nearest $1,000. The rounded amount is the AVPP of a school district for the purposes of this section;

(2) determine the median AVPP of all school districts;

(3) prepare a schedule of dollar amounts using the amount of the median AVPP of all school districts as the point of beginning. The schedule of dollar amounts shall range upward in equal $1,000 intervals from the point of beginning to and including an amount that is equal to the amount of the AVPP of the school district with the highest AVPP of all school districts and shall range downward in equal $1,000 intervals from the point of beginning to and including an amount that is equal to the amount of the AVPP of the school district with the lowest AVPP of all school districts;

(4) determine a state aid percentage factor for each school district by assigning a state aid computation percentage to the amount of the median AVPP shown on the schedule, decreasing the state aid computation percentage assigned to the amount of the median AVPP by one percentage point for each $1,000 interval above the amount of the median AVPP, and increasing the state aid computation percentage assigned to the amount of the median AVPP by one percentage point for each $1,000 interval below the amount of the median AVPP. The state aid percentage factor of a school district is the percentage assigned to the schedule amount that is equal to the amount of the AVPP of the school district, except that the state aid percentage factor of a school district shall not exceed 100%. The state aid computation percentage is 25%;

(5) determine the amount of the local option budget adopted by each school district pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 72-6471, and amendments thereto; and

(6) multiply the amount computed under subsection (a)(5) by the applicable state aid percentage factor. The resulting product is the amount of payment the school district is to receive as supplemental general state aid in the school year.

(b) The state board shall prescribe the dates upon which the distribution of payments of supplemental general state aid to school districts shall be due. Payments of supplemental general state aid shall be distributed to school districts on the dates prescribed by the state board. The state board shall certify to the director of accounts and reports the amount due each school district, and the director of accounts and reports shall draw a warrant on the state treasury payable to the treasurer of the school district. Upon receipt of the warrant, the treasurer of the school district shall credit the amount thereof to the supplemental general fund of the school district to be used for the purposes of such fund.

(c) If any amount of supplemental general state aid that is due to be paid during the month of June of a school year pursuant to the other provisions of this section is not paid on or before June 30 of such school year, then such payment shall be paid on or after the ensuing July 1, as soon as moneys are available therefor. Any payment of supplemental general state aid that is due to be paid during the month of June of a school year and that is paid to school districts on or after the ensuing July 1 shall be recorded and accounted for by school districts as a receipt for the school year ending on the preceding June 30.

(d) If the amount of appropriations for supplemental general state aid is less than the amount each school district is to receive for the school year, the state board shall prorate the amount appropriated among the school districts in proportion to the amount each school district is to receive as determined under subsection (a).

(e) The provisions of this section shall be part of and supplemental to the classroom learning assuring student success act.

(f) The provisions of this section shall expire on June 30, 2017.

History: L. 2016, ch. 45, § 3; July 1.
