Receipts from nonpublic schools handicapped and auxiliary recoveries are appropriated for the payment of additional aid in accordance with section 17 of P.L.1977, c.192 (C.18A:46A-14) and section 14 of P.L.1977, c.193 (C.18A:46-19.8).

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 14 of P.L.1977, c.193 (C.18A:46-19.8) for the purpose of computing Nonpublic Handicapped Aid for pupils requiring the following services, the per pupil amounts for the 2005-2006 school year shall be: $1,225.00 for an initial evaluation or reevaluation for examination and classification; $380.00 for an annual review for examination and classification; $930.00 for speech correction; and $826.00 for supplementary instruction services.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 9 of P.L.1977, c.192 (C.18A:46A-9), the per pupil amount for compensatory education for the 2005-2006 school year for the purposes of computing Nonpublic Auxiliary Services Aid shall equal $856.25.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 9 of P.L.1991, c.226 (C.18A:40-31), the amount appropriated hereinabove for Nonpublic Nursing Services Aid shall be made available to local school districts based upon the number of pupils enrolled in each nonpublic school on the last day prior to October 16, 2004 and the rate per pupil shall be $74.25.

Nonpublic Technology Initiative aid shall be paid to school districts and allocated for nonpublic school pupils at the rate of $40.00 per pupil in a manner that is consistent with the provisions of the federal and State constitutions.

The amount hereinabove appropriated for Extraordinary Special Education Costs Aid shall be charged first to receipts of the supplemental fee established pursuant to section 2 of P.L.2003, c.113 (C.46:15-7.1) credited to the Extraordinary Aid Account. Notwithstanding any provisions of that law to the contrary, the amount appropriated for Extraordinary Special Education Costs Aid from receipts deposited in the Extraordinary Aid account shall not exceed the amount appropriated hereinabove.

The unexpended balance in the Nonpublic Projects Capital Aid account at the end of the preceding fiscal year is appropriated and shall be distributed by the Commissioner of Education as grants to nonpublic high schools for capital projects, including capital projects completed after September 2003. Grants shall be awarded in accordance with criteria established by the commissioner which shall include but not be limited to a requirement that the capital project be used for a secular purpose. A grant shall be awarded upon submission of an application by the nonpublic school to the commissioner and the commissioner's approval of that application. The amount of a grant shall not exceed $500,000.

Of the amount hereinabove for High Expectations for Learning Proficiency Aid, $14,900,927 shall be distributed to a school district, other than an "Abbott district" or a district receiving Abbott Bordered District Aid, that is not a non-operating district as determined by the commissioner, and that is either (a) in district factor group A or B and has an equalized valuation per pupil less than $380,000; (b) in district factor group A, B, CD or DE, and has a concentration of low-income pupils that is equal to or greater than 14 percent and has an equalized valuation per pupil that is less than $1,100,000, and either has a general fund tax levy per pupil that exceeds $9,000 or a concentration of low-income pupils that exceeds 30 percent; (c) contiguous to an "Abbott district" and has at least one school with a concentration of low-income pupils equal to or greater than 20 percent; or (d) a county vocational school district in which 51 percent or more of its resident enrollment is comprised of students who reside in an "Abbott district." Each such school district shall receive the same proportion of $11,700,000 as its October 2004 resident enrollment bears to the total October 2004 resident enrollment of all such districts; in addition such school district shall receive such additional amount as may be required to increase the amount of High Expectations for Learning Proficiency Aid that the district receives in the 2005-2006 school year to the amount of High Expectations for Learning Proficiency Aid the district received in the 2004-2005 school year. As used hereinabove, "district factor group" shall be determined by the commissioner using 2000 federal decennial census data; "equalized valuation per pupil" and "general fund tax levy per pupil" shall be as determined by the commissioner for the school year 2004-05; and "concentration of low-income pupils" shall be as defined in section 3 of P.L.1996, c.138 (C.18A:7F-3), except that ASSA data shall be as of October 2004. Any amount remaining in this account after its distribution is made pursuant to these criteria shall be distributed by the commissioner to school districts meeting substantially similar circumstances.

 

Notwithstanding any other law or regulation to the contrary, the amount provided to each district from the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Consolidated Aid and Additional Formula Aid shall be included in the calculation of the spending growth limitation pursuant to section 5 of P.L.1996, c.138 (C.18A:7F-5).

The Commissioner of Education shall not authorize the disbursement of funds to any “Abbott district” until the commissioner is satisfied that all educational expenditures in the district will be spent effectively and efficiently in order to enable those students to achieve the core curriculum content standards. The commissioner shall be authorized to take any necessary action to fulfill this responsibility, including but not limited to, the adoption of regulations related to the receipt and/or expenditure of State aid by the “Abbott districts” and the programs, services and positions supported thereby. Notwithstanding any provision of P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.), any such regulations adopted by the commissioner shall be deemed adopted immediately upon filing with the Office of Administrative Law. In order to expeditiously fulfill the responsibilities of the commissioner under Abbott v. Burke, determinations by the commissioner hereunder shall be considered to be final agency action and appeal of that action shall be directly to the Appellate Division of the Superior Court.

Of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Education Opportunity Aid, an amount not to exceed $14,686,000, shall be transferred to the Department of Education's operating budget, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting, for the purpose of managing and supervising implementation of Abbott remedies. In addition, the unexpended balance at the end of the preceding fiscal year, in the Education Opportunity Aid account is appropriated for the same purpose and may also be transferred to the Department of Education's operating budget, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

The amount appropriated hereinabove for Education Opportunity Aid shall provide resources to equalize spending between “I” and “J” districts and “Abbott districts,” and provide aid to fund additional needs of “Abbott districts.” Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, Education Opportunity Aid shall be provided to each “Abbott district” whose per pupil regular education expenditure for 2005-2006 under P.L.1996, c.138 is below the estimated per pupil average regular education expenditure of districts in district factor groups “I” and “J” for 2005-2006. The minimum amount of aid shall be determined as follows: funds shall be allocated in the amount of the difference between each “Abbott district’s” per pupil regular education expenditure for 2005-2006 and the actual per pupil average regular education expenditure of districts in district factor groups “I” and “J” for 2004-2005 indexed by the actual percentage increase in the per pupil average regular education expenditure of districts in district factor groups “I” and “J” for 2004-2005 over the per pupil average regular education expenditure of districts in district factor groups “I” and “J” for 2003-2004. In calculating the per pupil regular education expenditure of each “Abbott district” for 2005-2006, regular education expenditure shall equal the sum of the general fund tax levy for 2004-2005, Core Curriculum Standards Aid, Supplemental Core Curriculum Standards Aid and all forms of stabilization aid pursuant to section 10 of P.L.1996, c.138 (C.18A:7F-10); enrollments shall initially be those resident enrollments for preschool through grade 12 contained on the Application for State School Aid for 2005-2006 indexed by the district’s enrollment growth rate used to determine the estimated enrollments of October 2005; enrollments shall be calculated at their full-time equivalent and reduced by preschool and one half of full-day kindergarten enrollments. State aid shall be adjusted upon receipt of resident enrollment for the “Abbott districts” as of October 14, 2005 as reflected on the Application for State School Aid for 2006-2007. State aid shall also be adjusted based on the actual per pupil average regular education expenditure of districts in district factor groups “I” and “J” for 2005-2006. In calculating the actual per pupil average regular education expenditure of districts in district factor groups “I” and “J” for 2005-2006, regular education expenditure shall equal the sum of the general fund tax levy for 2005-2006, Core Curriculum Standards Aid, Supplemental Core Curriculum Standards Aid and all forms of stabilization aid pursuant to section 10 of P.L.1996, c.138 (C.18A:7F-10); enrollments shall be the resident enrollment for preschool through grade 12 as of October 14, 2005 as reflected on the Application for State School Aid for 2006-2007; enrollments shall be calculated at their full-time equivalent and reduced by preschool and one half of full-day kindergarten enrollments in districts receiving Early Childhood Program Aid.

Of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Education Opportunity Aid, each "Abbott district's" initial allocation shall be the greater of the amount calculated in accordance with the provisions hereinabove for equalized spending or the district's 2004–2005 Education Opportunity Aid allocation, including any supplemental award.

The amount hereinabove appropriated for Education Opportunity Aid shall also be used for the following purposes: ensuring that every "Abbott district" is at parity; the incremental cost of opening new facilities as approved by the Commissioner of Education; and other education priorities as established by the commissioner, to be distributed in the form of grants. Awards for new facilities and approved grants are considered restricted and must be spent for the approved purpose and accounted for in a special revenue fund. Any "Abbott district" that fails to submit the required documentation or fails to submit its annual audit by November 15, 2005 may have its State aid withheld upon the commissioner's request to the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, as a condition of receiving Education Opportunity Aid, an "Abbott district" shall examine all available group options for every insurance policy held by the district, including any self–insurance plan administered by the New Jersey School Boards Association Insurance Group on behalf of districts, and shall participate in the most cost effective plans. As a further condition, all "Abbott districts" shall take steps to maximize the district's participation in the federal Universal Service Program (E–rate) and the ACT telecommunications program offered through the New Jersey Association of School Business Administrators, shall participate in the ACES energy program offered through the New Jersey School Boards Association unless a district can demonstrate that it receives the goods or services at a cost less than or equal to the cost achieved by participants, and shall take appropriate steps to maximize the district's participation in the Special Education Medicaid Initiative (SEMI) program, with maximum participation defined by the Commissioner of Education and shall refinance all outstanding debt for which a three percent net present value savings threshold is achievable. An "Abbott district" that fails to meet any of these requirements may have payment of Education Opportunity Aid withheld until such time as these requirements are met. The commissioner is authorized to establish any additional condition on the disbursement of Education Opportunity Aid that the commissioner deems appropriate to ensure effective and efficient spending in the "Abbott districts."

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, as a condition of receiving Education Opportunity Aid, an “Abbott district” shall raise a general fund tax levy which shall be no less than the general fund tax levy of the prior year.

The amount appropriated hereinabove as Abbott Preschool Expansion Aid is for the purpose of funding the increase in the approved budgeted costs from 2001-2002 to 2005-2006 for the projected expansion of preschool programs in “Abbott districts” with "Abbott" status in 2001–2002. For any district receiving "Abbott" status after 2001–2002, the increase in approved budgeted costs for the purpose of funding will be based on the year "Abbott" status was obtained. Payments of Abbott Preschool Expansion Aid shall be based on documented expansion of the preschool program. Upon the Commissioner of Education’s request, “Abbott districts” will be required to provide such supporting documentation as deemed necessary to verify that the actual expansion in the preschool program has occurred in the 2005-2006 fiscal year. Such documentation may include expenditure, enrollment and attendance data that may be subject to an audit. Appropriate adjustments to a district’s Abbott Preschool Expansion Aid amount may be made by the commissioner based on actual need.

From the amount appropriated hereinabove for the Early Launch to Learning Initiative, an amount not to exceed $325,000 shall be transferred to the Office of Early Childhood Education in direct state services for the support of two staff persons and related operational costs to administer the program, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

The amount hereinabove appropriated for the New Jersey Character Education Partnership Initiative shall be made available to school districts according to a formula to be administered by the Commissioner of Education which will assure that each district that elects to participate shall receive funding for at least one school. Of the amount appropriated hereinabove, up to $100,000 may be used to fund the costs of operating this program, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, the amount of State aid made available to the Department of Human Services pursuant to “The State Facilities Education Act of 1979,” P.L.1979, c.207 (C.18A:7B-1 et al.), to defray the costs of educating eligible children in approved private schools under contract with the Department of Human Services shall not exceed the actual costs of the education of those children in such private schools.

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, Special Education Aid for pupils classified as severe cognitive impairment shall be paid directly to the resident school district; provided however, that for pupils under contract for service in a regional day school operated by or under contract with the Department of Human Services, tuition shall be withheld and paid to the Department of Human Services.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 3 of P.L.1971, c.271, (C.18A:46-31), a portion of the district tuition amounts payable to a county special services school district operating an extended school year program may be transferred to the county special services school district prior to the first of September in the event the board shall file a written request with the Commissioner of Education stating the needs for the funds. The commissioner shall review the board’s request and determine whether to grant the request after an assessment of whether the district needs to spend the funds prior to September and after considering the availability of district surplus. The commissioner shall transfer the payment for the portion of the tuition payable for which need has been demonstrated.

Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the allocation of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Education Opportunity Aid to an "Abbott district" shall be reduced by the amount of proceeds received by the district from the sale of district surplus property, which shall be appropriated by the district for regular education operations. Surplus property means that property which is not being replaced by other property under a grant agreement with the New Jersey Schools Construction Corporation.

Of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Education Opportunity Aid, an amount not to exceed $1,000,000 shall be allocated to the New Jersey Symphony to provide educational services to students in the "Abbott districts" to meet core curriculum content standards as established by law, as shall be determined by the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

The amount of aid hereinabove for Above Average Enrollment Growth Aid shall be distributed to non-Abbott school districts whose resident enrollment for the 2004-05 school year was equal to or greater than 100 pupils and whose projected resident enrollment for the 2005-06 school year exceeds its resident enrollment for the 2004-05 school year by at least 2.5 percent, as determined by the commissioner. Each such school district shall receive an amount equal to $800 multiplied by its projected increase in resident enrollment if its projected increase is less than 7 percent, an amount equal to $1,600 multiplied by its projected increase in resident enrollment if its projected increase is equal to or greater than 7 percent and less than 10 percent, and an amount equal to $2,400 multiplied by its projected increase in resident enrollment if its projected increase is equal to or greater than 10 percent. Any amount remaining in this account after distributions made pursuant to these criteria shall be distributed by the commissioner to school districts meeting substantially similar circumstances.
