"40. Supplemental Lottery Per Pupil Allocation Payments

a. Out of this appropriation, an amount estimated at $105,494,302 the first year and $167,174,802 the second year from the Lottery Proceeds Fund shall be disbursed by the Department of Education to local school divisions to support the state share of an estimated $151.18 per pupil the first year and $238.73 per pupil the second year in adjusted March 31 average daily membership. These per pupil amounts are subject to change for the purpose of payment to school divisions based on the actual March 31 ADM collected each year. No locality shall be required to maintain a per pupil expenditure which is greater than the per pupil amount expended by the locality for such purposes in the year upon which the 2016-18 biennial Standards of Quality expenditure data were based.

b. Of the amounts listed above, no more than 50 percent shall be used for recurring costs and at least 50 percent shall be spent on nonrecurring expenditures by the relevant school divisions. Nonrecurring costs shall include school construction, additions, infrastructure, site acquisition, renovations, technology, and other expenditures related to modernizing classroom equipment, and debt service payments on school projects completed during the last 10 years.

c. Any lottery funds provided to school divisions from this item that are unexpended as of June 30, 2017, and June 30, 2018, shall be carried on the books of the locality to be appropriated to the school division in the following year."


(This amendment provides $85.2 million the first year and $157.2 million the second year from the Lottery Proceeds Fund and distributes to schools divisions on a per pupil amount basis. This amendment reinstates the policy that provides a per pupil amount to school divisions from the Lottery Fund. There are other amendments in this item that provide additional revenues toward this initiative that collectively equal to $105.5 million in the first year and $167.2 million the second year.)
