FOUNDATION PROGRAM — STATE AID — APPORTIONMENT
33-1020. Idaho digital learning academy funding. Of the moneys appropriated for the educational support program, an amount shall be distributed to support the Idaho digital learning academy, created pursuant to chapter 55, title 33, Idaho Code. For the purposes of this section, an "enrollment" shall be counted each time an Idaho school age child enrolls in an Idaho digital learning academy class. A single child enrolled in multiple classes shall count as multiple enrollments. Summer enrollments shall be included in the fiscal year that begins that summer. The amount distributed shall be calculated as follows:
(1) A base amount shall be distributed, equal to the current fiscal year’s statewide average salary-based apportionment funding per midterm support unit, multiplied by twenty-six (26).
(2) A variable amount shall be distributed, equal to the number of enrollments multiplied by the current fiscal year’s appropriation of state funds for the educational support program per student reported in attendance for the first reporting period, divided by twenty-three (23).
The state department of education shall make an estimated distribution of funds to the Idaho digital learning academy by no later than July 31 of each fiscal year, consisting of eighty percent (80%) of the estimated funding for the fiscal year. The balance of all remaining funds to be distributed, pursuant to the calculations in this section, shall be distributed by no later than May 15 of the same fiscal year.
