 26      TOTAL             $1,651,900    $9,217,600      $787,200    $11,656,700
 27        SECTION 2.  In accordance with Section 67-3519, Idaho Code, the agency  is
 28    authorized  no more than twenty-two (22) full-time equivalent positions at any
 29    point during the period July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006, for  the  program
 30    specified in Section 1 of this act, unless specifically authorized by the Gov-
 31    ernor. The Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee will be notified promptly of
 32    any increased positions so authorized.
 33        SECTION  3.  The  Legislature reaffirms that the Division of Professional-
 34    Technical Education and the Office of the State Board of Education  each  play
 35    unique  and  vital  roles  in  the state's educational system. The Legislature
 36    authorizes these agencies to share administrative resources only to the extent
 37    necessary to  achieve  readily  obtainable  administrative  efficiencies.  The
 38    shared resources authorized in this section shall be narrowly defined as human
 39    resources,  information  technology,  reception  and  the fiscal activities of
 40    accounts payable, payroll processing and financial statement preparation. Each
 41    division administrator shall retain management decision-making  autonomy  over
 42    their  respective  divisions.  The  employees of the Division of Professional-
  1    Technical Education shall not be considered or used as adjunct  staff  by  the
  2    Office  of  the  State  Board  of Education. Under no circumstances shall this
  3    arrangement impair the individual ability of these agencies to  fulfill  their
  4    individual  missions.  This  authorization  is  automatically withdrawn to the
  5    extent it is found to be inconsistent with laws or regulations  pertaining  to
  6    the  use  of  federal  or  dedicated  funds. The Legislature shall review this
  7    authorization each year and reserve its prerogative  to  withdraw  it  at  any
  8    time.
  9        SECTION 4.  It is legislative intent that the Office of the State Board of
 10    Education  make  every  effort to minimize costs associated with federal grant
 11    administration, in order to maximize the amount of federal grant funds  passed
 12    through to recipients. The Office of the State Board of Education shall report
 13    the following information to the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee at its
 14    fall 2005 interim meeting:
 15        (1)  For  each federal grant administered by the Office of the State Board
 16        of Education in state fiscal year 2005, the amount of money allowed to  be
 17        spent  at the state level, the categories of permissible expenditures, and
 18        the amount of money that must be passed through to recipients; and
 19        (2)  For each federal grant administered by the Office of the State  Board
 20        of Education in state fiscal year 2005, the amount of money actually spent
 21        at  the state level, the categories of actual expenditures, and the amount
 22        of money actually passed through to recipients.

The Fiscal Year 2006 appropriation for the Office of the State Board of Education includes funding for the increased cost of employee health insurance. Nonstandard Adjustments include minor adjustments in building services space charges, risk management fees, State Controller fees, and State Treasurer fees. Also included is an increase of $187,800 in Attorney General fees, which represents an increase of 2,500 hours in the amount of time spent by deputy attorneys general on the Office of the State Board of Education.

Nonstandard Adjustments also include a restoration of $287,100 of the moneys removed from this budget last year, in order to provide more funds for Public Schools. Of this, $220,900 is allocated back to the board’s assessments program, which is the program from which it was taken, while $55,200 was allocated for a position, under the first enhancement request, to provide staff support for the Charter School Commission. The remaining $11,000 is for the operational costs of the Charter School Commission, as stated on the fiscal note that created it. Of the $324,600 that was requested to be restored but is not, $40,600 would have gone towards an additional position in first enhancement, which was not granted, and $284,000 would have gone back into the assessments program. While the money $220,900 restored to the assessments program for FY 2006 provides sufficient cash to meet its needs, the remaining $284,000 will almost certainly need to be restored in FY 2007, after FY 2006 cash balances in federal funds are depleted.

The second enhancement simply increases the board’s federal funds spending authority to reflect the amount of anticipated grants, while the third enhancement, adding a second deputy attorney general for the board’s disposal, has not been granted in this, or the Attorney General’s budget.
