Missouri State Senate

Introduced

SB 644 - Currently, the phase-in period of the SB 287 formula contains a provision that reduces current year funding for any district that decreases its summer school average daily attendance below 15% of the district's 2005-2006 summer school average daily attendance. The level of such funding reduction is pegged to the district's drop in summer school attendance from the 2005-2006 summer school attendance.

This act alters the aforementioned policy by phasing the threshold for allowable decreases in summer school attendance upward in intervals corresponding to the percent of state aid districts will receive based on their 2005-2006 payment amount derived from the SB 380 formula. Further, the act applies the reduction only to the percent reduction that is in excess of the threshold rather than the reduction from the base 2005-2006 summer school amount.

This act contains an emergency clause with an effective date of July 1, 2006.
