DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 100.5% of the existing operating budget. It represents 79.8% of the total request ($305,788,023) for this program. The major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget is due to the Board of Regents Enhancement Pool Distribution ($2,642,975). The Laboratory School funding is now pegged at 100% of the statewide average for students in Minimum Foundation Program schools; this increase ($23,386) is pursuant to the terms of Act 880 of 1997. There is a decrease in general fund due to a non-recurring adjustment for one time only non Minimum Foundation Program Support Personnel salary supplement ($-672). Statewide adjustments account for the remaining difference.
