BILL NUMBER:S3018

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
supplemental educational improvement plan grants

PURPOSE: This bill captures regional cost indexes in calculating SEIP
grants.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section I of this 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 read as follows: To the Yonkers City
School District there shall be paid seventeen million five hundred
thousand dollars multiplied by such District's regional cost index.

JUSTIFICATION: Regional cost indexes were recently adopted under the
State's new Foundation Aid formula for public education. Certain
school districts, however, may also receive SEIP grants, which are
designed to provide additional State funds for the continuation of
programs and services under a court ordered plan. These funds should
also be subject to the regional cost differences accounted for in the
new school aid formula.
