Item 137 #16h

Direct Aid to Public Education


Page 167, strike lines 40 through 42, and insert:

"11. When updating funding to school divisions during the biennial rebenchmarking process, the Department of Education is directed to calculate the total rebenchmarking costs by applying a cap on inflation rates in the same manner prescribed in § 51.1-166.B, Code of Virginia, as well as without the applying any cap on inflation rates."


(This amendment directs the Department of Education, when calculating rebenchmarking costs for an upcoming biennium, to perform two calculations. The first would apply a cap on inflation rates as provided under current law, and the second would not include any cap.)
