"5. In the event that a school division contracts for all its education services with another school division, the Board of Education shall approve additional state payments from this item for each contracting school division.  The amount of such additional state payment shall be determined based on Basic School Aid account for the contracting school division with the lowest number of pupils in ADM, using a composite index that the Board of Education establishes, less the current entitlement for such contracting school division.  The Board shall establish a composite index equal to the composite index of the contracting school division in the division with the lowest number of pupils in ADM less the lesser of 0.5000 or the difference between the highest composite index of the contracting school divisions and the lowest composite index of the contacting school divisions.  This additional payment shall be authorized until termination of such contract.  Those school divisions currently securing all educational services through contractual arrangements are eligible for this payment."

(This amendment authorizes additional state funding for school divisions that contract with another school division for all its education services. The funding is an estimate based on known information about Fairfax City and County.)
