The 1975-1976 Allocation Formulae; Policy Paper No. 3.
Gifford, Bernard R.; Choy, Ronald K. H.
This report presents the methods and formulae used to allocate monies to thirty-two community school districts in New York City. The magnitude of the budget cuts from fiscal year 1974-1975 to fiscal year 1975-1976 is unprecedented. Equal educational opportunity for students is defined in terms of dollars, resources, and outcomes. There are five modules in this report (1, 2, 3, 4B and 7). Each module represents a grouping of activities for which different allocation formulas are used. Where applicable, the audited October 31, 1974 public school pupil register is utilized as a basis for funding. Module 1 funds are designated for community school boards and district administration to support administrative and supervisory activities. Module 2 funds are designated for instructional services, the resources required to meet classroom workload factors on the basis of class size, teaching, preparation, and administrative period assignments. Module 3 is divided into two parts: continuing education and extended use of school buildings. Allocations for continuing education services are based upon a weighted register of public and non-public school pupils, as well as the number of low income school-age children. Module 4, special formula funds, includes monies provided under day elementary and day junior high school New York State Textbook Law and funds for capital note items. Module 7 funds are designated for furniture and equipment procurement. Allocations to districts for furniture and equipment are based on square footage in the district adjusted for utilization, age of buildings and modernizations. Tables, charts, illustrated calculations, and an appendix are included. (JP)
