Charter School At-Risk Calculation

The alternate at-risk funding calculation applies only to charter schools that are newly created in FY 2004-05 or after; are in a district that has retained exclusive chartering authority; and the district has an at-risk percentage greater than 40%. The intent of the alternate at-risk funding calculation is to provide at-risk money based on the at-risk population served by the charter school.

The alternate at-risk funding formula is: (The accounting district's at-risk funding divided by the accounting district's funded pupil count) x (the district charter school's percentage of pupils eligible for free lunch divided by the accounting district's percentage of pupils eligible for free lunch)

The worksheet provided below will calculate the alternate at-risk funding.
