Planning and Budget, Department of

Page 212, line 41, strike "Commencing in fiscal year 2007" and insert "a. For fiscal year 2011".
Page 212, after line 48, insert:
"b. Commencing in fiscal year 2012, each participating school division shall pay 37.5 percent of the cost incurred by the state for that school division's efficiency review to be conducted.
Consistent with language and intent contained in Item 127, any school division that elects to participate in a school efficiency review as a component unit of a division level academic review shall be exempt from the 37.5 percent payment of the costs of the review but will not be exempt from paying a recovery cost of 25 percent if the school division does not initiate at least 50 percent of the review's recommendations within 24 months of receiving their final school efficiency review report.

(This amendment increases the percentage of cost paid by the localities for school efficiency reviews from 25 percent to 37.5 percent. An adjustment has been made to reflect $20,000 in increased revenues as a result of this change.)
