Fiscal Note
Redistribution of state subsidy - Local school administrative units
Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation repeals the sections of current law that set the per-pupil amounts for system administration to be allocated to school administrative units (SAU's) in fiscal year 2019-20 and instead requires that, beginning in fiscal year 2019-20, the per-pupil allocation be provided only to those SAU's that have established regionalized administrative services pursuant to Title 20-A, chapter 123 or are identified as high-performing, efficient schools based on a review of system administration costs for high-performing, efficient SAU's.
This change will result in a redistribution of state subsidy in fiscal year 2019-20, with some SAU's receiving more subsidy than would have been received absent this legislation and some SAU's receiving less.  The impact to individual SAU's can not be determined.
