BILL NUMBER:S1403

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 supplemental educational improvement plan grants.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of this bill amends paragraph b of subdivision 8 of
Section 3641 of 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 supplemental educational improvement plan
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.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.6059 of 2008
2009/2010 - S.4816 - Died Education

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
An estimated $2.67 million to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
