(This amendment reflects savings of $21.5 million from the budget as introduced, by adjusting funding based on changing the percentage At-Risk Add-On range from 2.5-14 percent of Basic Aid in the budget as introduced to 1-14 percent. This represents an increase from the current range in fiscal year 2016 of 1-12 percent based on each school division's percentage of students eligible for free lunch, based on family income levels. A companion amendment also captures savings of $15.3 million in this program.)
