Revisions to Policy 6180.01 Allocation and Use of Sales Surtax and New Administrative Procedure 6180.01

Public Hearing - 08/08/2023
Action - 08/22/2023
One of the proposed changes to Policy 6180.01 implements new language enacted by the Legislature and signed by the Governor in the 2023 Legislative Session in CS/CS/HB 1259. The legislation changes the way that sales surtax revenue is allocated to charter schools. Prior to the new legislation, the charter share was based upon the proportionate share of total enrollment. The new legislation changes the calculation to be passed on the proportionate share of “total school district capital outlay full-time equivalent enrollment as adopted by the education estimating conference.”
The total school district capital outlay full-time equivalent (COFTE) enrollment is a number that is provided to the District each year on or about July 1. The preliminary number for FY 24 is 59,800. Starting with sales surtax collected after July 1 (September revenue), the calculation will use the District COFTE of 59,800 and the charter school enrollment – estimated at 10,000. This will increase the charter schools’ share from 11.603% to approximately 14%.
The second proposed change adds language that codifies how net interest earned is allocated and used. Since the 2014 sales surtax revenue exceeded the program goal, any net interest received on these funds will be allocated to contingency for use on projects. Net interest received on 2020 sales surtax revenue will be allocated the same as sales surtax revenue - 15% to security, 15% to educational technology and 70% to facility renewal.
A new administrative procedure is proposed to codify:
The ICOC reviewed the policy revisions and new adminstrative procedure on June 26, 2023 and recommended approval.
