9 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
10 SECTION 1. That Section 33-1004, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
11 amended to read as follows:
12 33-1004. STAFF ALLOWANCE. For each school district, a staff allowance
13 shall be determined as follows:
14 1. Using the daily attendance reports that have been submitted for com-
15 puting the February 15th apportionment of state funds as provided in section
16 33-1009, Idaho Code, determine the total support units for the district in the
17 manner provided in section 33-1002 8.b., Idaho Code;
18 2. Determine the instructional staff allowance by multiplying the support
19 units by 1.1. A district must demonstrate that it actually employs the number
20 of certificated instructional staff allowed. If the district does not employ
21 the number allowed, the staff allowance shall be reduced to the actual number
23 3. Determine the administrative staff allowance by multiplying the sup-
24 port units by .075. A district must demonstrate that it actually employs the
25 number of certificated administrative staff allowed. If the district does not
26 employ the number allowed, the staff allowance shall be reduced to the actual
27 number employed, except that not more than twenty percent (20%) of the admin-
28 istrative staff allowance may be noncertificated staff;
29 4. Determine the supervisory and professional classified
30 staff allowance by multiplying the support units by .375
32 5. Determine the nonsupervisory and nonprofessional classified
33 staff by multiplying the support units by .297 .
34 5 6 . Additional conditions governing staff
36 a. In determining the number of staff in subsections 2., 3. ,
37 and 4. and 5. of this section, a district may
38 contract separately for services to be rendered by nondistrict employees
39 and such employees may be counted in the staff allowance. A "nondistrict
40 employee" means a person for whom the school district does not pay the
41 employer's obligations for employee benefits. When a district contracts
42 for the services of a nondistrict employee, only the salary portion of the
43 contract shall be allowable for computations.
1 b. If there are circumstances preventing eligible use of staff allowance
2 to which a district is entitled as provided in subsections 2. and 3. of
3 this section, an appeal may be filed with the state department of educa-
4 tion outlining the reasons and proposed alternative use of these funds,
5 and a waiver may be granted.
6 c. For any district with less than forty (40) support units:
7 (1) The instructional staff allowance shall be calculated applying
8 the actual number of support units. If the actual instructional
9 staff employed in the 1994-95 school year is greater than the
10 instructional staff allowance, then the instructional staff allowance
11 shall be increased by one-half (1/2) staff allowance; and
12 (2) The administrative staff allowance shall be calculated applying
13 the actual number of support units. If the actual administrative
14 staff employed in the 1994-95 school year is greater than the admin-
15 istrative staff allowance, then the administrative staff allowance
16 shall be increased by one-half (1/2) staff allowance.
17 (3) Additionally, for any district with less than twenty (20) sup-
18 port units, the instructional staff allowance shall be calculated
19 applying the actual number of support units. If the number of
20 instructional staff employed in the 1994-95 school year is greater
21 than the instructional staff allowance, the staff allowance shall be
22 increased as provided in paragraphs (1) and (2) of this subsection,
23 and by an additional one-half (1/2) instructional staff allowance.
24 d. Only instructional, administrative and classified personnel compen-
25 sated by the school district from the general maintenance and operation
26 fund of the district shall be included in the calculation of staff allow-
27 ance or in any other calculations based upon staff, including determina-
28 tion of the experience and education multiplier, the reporting require-
29 ments, or the district's salary-based apportionment calculation. No food
30 service staff or transportation staff shall be included in the staff
32 6 7 . In the event that the staff allowance in
33 any category is insufficient to meet accreditation standards, a district may
34 appeal to the state board of education, demonstrating the insufficiency, and
35 the state board may grant a waiver authorizing sufficient additional staff to
36 be included within the staff allowance to meet accreditation standards. Such a
37 waiver shall be limited to one (1) year, but may be renewed upon showing of
38 continuing justification.
39 SECTION 2. That Section 33-1004E, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
40 amended to read as follows:
41 33-1004E. DISTRICT'S SALARY-BASED APPORTIONMENT. Each district shall be
42 entitled to a salary-based apportionment calculated as provided in this sec-
44 1. To determine the apportionment for instructional staff, first deter-
45 mine the district average experience and education index by placing all eligi-
46 ble district certificated instructional employees on the statewide index pro-
47 vided in section 33-1004A, Idaho Code. The resulting average is the district
48 index. Districts with an index above the state average index shall receive
49 their actual index but not more than the state average plus.03
50 plus .03 for the 1994-95 school year, and shall receive their
51 actual index but not more than the state average plus.06
52 plus .06 for the 1995-96 school year, and thereafter shall receive
53 their actual district index. The district instructional staff index shall be
1 multiplied by the instructional base salary of $19,715. The amount so deter-
2 mined shall be multiplied by the district staff allowance for instructional
3 staff determined as provided in section 33-1004 2., Idaho Code. The resulting
4 amount is the district's salary-based apportionment for instructional staff.
5 2. To determine the apportionment for district administrative staff,
6 first determine the district average experience and education index by placing
7 all eligible certificated administrative employees on the statewide index pro-
8 vided in section 33-1004A, Idaho Code. The resulting average is the district
9 index. Districts with an index above the state average index shall receive
10 their actual index but not more than the state average plus.03
11 plus .03 for the school year 1994-95, and shall receive their
12 actual index but not more than the state average index plus.06
13 plus .06 school year, and thereafter shall receive their actual
14 district index. The district administrative staff index shall be multiplied by
15 the base salary of $28,843. The amount so determined shall be multiplied by
16 the district staff allowance for administrative staff determined as provided
17 in section 33-1004 3., Idaho Code. The resulting amount is the district's
18 salary-based apportionment for administrative staff.
19 3. To determine the apportionment for supervisory and professional
20 classified staff, multiply $17,848 by the district supervisory and profes-
21 sional staff allowance determined as provided in section 33-1004 4., Idaho
22 Code. The amount so determined is the district's apportionment for supervisory
23 and professional classified staff.
24 4. To determine the apportionment for nonsupervisory and
25 nonprofessional classified staff, multiply $15,300 by the district
26 nonsupervisory and nonprofessional classified staff allowance
27 determined as provided in section 33-1004 4 5 ., Idaho
28 Code. The amount so determined is the district's apportionment for
29 nonsupervisory and nonprofessional classified staff.
30 4 5 . The district's salary-based apportionment
31 shall be the sum of the apportionments calculated in subsections 1., 2. ,
32 and 3. , and 4. of this section,
33 plus the benefit apportionment as provided in section 33-1004F, Idaho Code.
34 6. For purposes of the apportionments calculated under this sec-
35 tion, the following definitions shall be determined by the state department of
36 education: "district administrative staff," "instructional staff,"
37 "nonsupervisory and nonprofessional classified staff," and "supervisory and
38 professional classified staff."
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this legislation is to establish a new category and appropriate
formula and salary adjustments in Idaho Code 33-1004, "Salary Allowance" and
33-1004E, "District Salary Based Apportionment."
Currently staff allowance formulas exist for the categories of "instructional staff,"
"administrative staff," and "classified staff." This legislation would add a fourth
classification—"supervisory and professional classified staff." It would also establish
a ratio and salary allocation amount for this new category and adjust the current ratio
for the category of "classified staff."
While there will be no additional cost to any unit of government by the enactment of
this legislation, the annual appropriation for public schools will require an additional
amount be dedicated to the salary allocation formula, thereby reducing the total
amount which will be available for other categorical or discretionary expenditures.
Based on the information available from the 1996-1997 school year, the additional
amount which would have been designated for the salary allocation formula is
approximately $2.5 million.
