METHODOLOGY:

This bill eliminates the proration provision relative to Keno revenue for the additional kindergarten grant under RSA 198:48-c, which applies to FY 2020 and each year thereafter.  Under current law, the Department of Education is to distribute an additional grant to school districts and public charter schools calculated pursuant to RSA 198:40-a (“adequacy”) for the ½ of each kindergarten average daily membership not counted under the adequacy formula.  It should be noted that under the adequacy formula, if a municipality raises an amount of statewide education property tax in excess of its calculated cost of an adequate education, that municipality does not receive a state grant.  However, the additional kindergarten grant under RSA 198:48-c would be distributed to all municipalities as it is not part of the adequacy formula.

 

In FY 2020, under current law, the additional kindergarten grant per student would be between $1,100 and $4,145, depending on the student’s eligibility for differentiated aid and actual Keno revenue, while under this bill the additional kindergarten grant per student would be between $1,856 and $4,145, depending only on the student’s eligibility for differentiated aid.  

 

Current Law

Proposed

RSA 198:48-c

Kindergarten Grant Amount

$1,100 to $4,145

$1,856 to $4,145

Criteria for Determining Grant Amount
