BILL NUMBER:S1012A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
providing the Yonkers city school district with additional supplemental
education improvement plan funds

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this legislation is to
provide the Yonkers City School District with additional Supplemental
Improvement Plan funds totaling the percentage enrollment growth multi-
plied by the District's Foundation Aid in the base year.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends Paragraph b of subdivision 8 of Section
3641 of the Education Law, as amended by Section 29 of Part B of Chapter
57 of the laws of 2008 to provide for additional Supplemental Improve-
ment plan funds based on the percentage increase in enrollment from the
2008-2009 to the 2011-2012 school year multiplied by the district's
total Foundation Aid.

JUSTIFICATION: The Yonkers City School District has experienced signif-
icant enrollment increases from the 2008-2009 school year to the current
2011-2012 school year. However, the State's freeze of Foundation Aid
funding does not account for this growth thereby placing the District in
the unfortunate position of having to educate more pupils without addi-
tional funding from the State. This legislation recognizes the increase
of 1,347 pupils, a 5.9 percent increase.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011 - S.1012 Education Committee
2010 - S.7189 (Passed Senate)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Approximately $8 million for the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect July 1, 2012.
