$10,651,329

R

Total revised allotted ADM for FY 2013-14 is 1,509,985, an increase of

17,192 students over FY 2012-13. Total revised allotted ADM for FY

2014-15 is 1,526,591, an increase of 16,606 students over FY 2013-14.

2

ADM Adjustment: Opportunity Scholarships

Adjusts FY 2014-15 ADM to reflect the estimated decrease in public school enrollment resulting from the Opportunity Scholarship Grants authorized by Section 8.29 of this act.

3

Average Salaries for Certified Personnel

Revises budgeted funding for certified personnel salaries based on actual salary data from December 2012. The adjustment does not reduce any salary paid to certified personnel, nor does it reduce the number of guaranteed State-funded teachers, administrators, or instructional support personnel.

($11,873,083)

4

Civil Penalties

Increases budgeted receipts from Civil Penalties and takes a corresponding General Fund reduction to reflect one-time transfers from the Departments of Justice, Revenue and Transportation in FY

2012-13. These funds are used to support State Public School Fund requirements.

5

Sales Tax Receipts Transfer to State Public School Fund

Increases the annual transfer from the Department of Revenue (DOR) to the State Public School Fund based on projected growth in State sales tax proceeds. This transfer was initiated in S.L. 2005-276,

Exceptional Children Headcount

Adjusts funding budgeted for the Children With Disabilities preschool and school-age allotments to reflect actual student headcount. The continuation budget includes anticipated growth based on the projected headcount of children with disabilities. This adjustment revises budgeted funding for both preschool and school-age children with special needs to reflect the April 1, 2013 headcount and does not reduce funding per student.

($2,689,483)

B. Elimination of the LEA Adjustment

7

LEA Adjustment Elimination

Eliminates the LEA Adjustment completely. The elimination is accomplished by: 1) providing additional General Fund support to lower the recurring amount of the Adjustment, and, 2) reducing specific allotments in approximately the same proportion as school districts have done the last two years in implementing the Adjustment.

$376,124,279

8

Classroom Teachers

Adjusts funding to school districts for guaranteed Classroom Teacher positions, modifying this allotment in approximately the same proportion that school districts had done in previous fiscal years to implement the LEA Adjustment. Nearly 70% of all funds foregone by

LEAs over the last two years to comply with the Adjustment came from the Classroom Teachers and Career Technical Education Months of

Employment allotments. Revised ratios for distributing guaranteed positions from this allotment are as follows:

($286,433,312)

FY 2013-14

K: 1 teacher per 19 students

1-3: 1 teacher per 18 students

4-6: 1 teacher per 24 students

7-8: 1 teacher per 23 students

9: 1 teacher per 26.5 students

10-12: 1 teacher per 29 students

FY 2014-15

K: 1 teacher per 19 students

1: 1 teacher per 18 students

2-3: 1 teacher per 17 students

4-6: 1 teacher per 24 students

7-8: 1 teacher per 23 students

9: 1 teacher per 26.5 students

10-12: 1 teacher per 29 students

9

Instructional Support Personnel

Adjusts funding to school districts for guaranteed Instructional Support positions, modifying this allotment in approximately the same proportion that school districts had done in previous fiscal years to implement the LEA Adjustment. Nearly 5% of all funds foregone by

LEAs over the last two years to comply with the Adjustment came from this allotment. $323.0 million will be available in this allotment in FY

2013-14; $326.1 million will be available in FY 2014-15.

($6,919,008)

C. Other Public School Funding Adjustments

11

Limited English Proficiency

Reduces the allotment for Limited English Proficiency. Of the $6 million reduction, $3 million is reduced to account for declining enrollment based on revised student headcount figures. $75.3 million will be available in this allotment in FY 2013-14; $82.0 million will be available in FY 2014-15.

12

ACT Assessments

Provides a dedicated source of State funding for the administration of the ACT testing suite, which includes the ACT, PLAN, EXPLORE, and

WorkKeys diagnostic assessments.

13

School Bus Replacement

Reduces funding for school bus replacement and modifies the school bus replacement standards pursuant to Section 8.11. Currently, school buses are eligible for replacement after 20 years or 200,000 miles of service. This item modifies the mileage and age standards and appropriates sufficient funding to replace all school buses meeting the revised criteria. 539 buses will be replaced in FY 2013-14; 579 buses will be replaced in FY 2014-15. $37.8 million will be available for this purpose in FY 2013-14; $49.6 million will be available in FY

2014-15.

($6,000,000)

$7,500,000

($29,823,055)

14

Stop Arm Cameras

Provides funding to purchase two school bus stop arm safety cameras for all 115 LEAs in both years of the biennium. The cameras are intended to improve student safety by serving as a visible deterrent to potential stop arm violators and documenting actual violations for use in prosecution.

15

Low Wealth Supplemental Funding

Adjusts the supplemental allotment for school districts in low wealth communities to align funding availability with actual school district eligibility. This adjustment will not reduce funding to eligible districts.

In addition, Section 8.3 of this act adjusts the Low Wealth formula to provide the same amount of supplemental funding to school districts in certain low wealth counties as received in the 2012-2013 fiscal year.

These local school administrative units have an average daily membership of more than 23,000 students and are in counties that also contain a base of the Armed Forces of the United States. $213.1 million will be available in this allotment in FY 2013-14 and FY 2014-15.

Small County Supplemental Funding

Reduces funding for this supplemental allotment for small counties in

FY 2013-14 to align funding availability with actual school district eligibility. In FY 2014-15, this allotment is restructured to restrict eligibility to only those counties with ADM of 3,200 or less and to provide per-pupil funding on a sliding scale based on the size of the school district. LEAs made ineligible under this formula will have their allotment phased-out over a five-year period. Section 8.4 provides additional details on this change. $44.6 million will remain in this allotment in FY 2013-14 and $42.4 million will remain in FY 2014-15.

17

Education Value Added Assessment System (EVAAS)

Increases General Fund support for EVAAS to continue expansion initially supported by receipts in FY 2012-13. That expansion enables:

1) direct access to value-added information for teachers who teach classes with an End of Course/End of Grade test, and 2) capability for users to export EVAAS data and merge it with other relevant analyses. Total EVAAS funding will be $2.7 million.

18

$2,208 to $2,288.

37

Continuing Education Fee

Increases continuing education fees by $5 per course and takes a corresponding General Fund reduction in anticipation of increased tuition receipts. The new fees will be as follows:

Classes 1-24 hours - $70,

Classes 25-50 hours - $125,

Classes 51+ hours - $180.

Adjustment Based on Historical Transfers

Reduces funds based on historical transfers from the Division of Social

Services to the Division of Medical Assistance. In FY 2010-11 $9.7 million was transferred from contracts, unused adoption and foster care services funding, and other administrative funds. In FY 2011-12 the division transferred approximately $15.3 million. Of this amount approximately $4.5 million was from unspent foster care and adoption services funding, $600,000 from lapsed salary, $1 million in contracts, and $4 million from non-recurring revenue from prior year earned revenue, indirect costs and prior year audit and adjustments. The remaining funds came from administration, including seat management. Some of the historical transfers are reduced in the seat management and contract and administrative reduction items. Foster

Care and Adoption services funding was reduced in the continuation budget.

Federal Funds for County Child Welfare Services

Replacement

Provides funds to partially replace federal funding for child welfare administration due to a change in the application of federal policy. The

State supports county DSS agencies at an overall rate of 31% of the non-federal share of their county budgets for public assistance and service programs. This appropriation replaces 33% of the lost federal funding on a nonrecurring basis to support the counties while the North

Carolina Families Accessing Services through Technology (NCFAST) information system is being developed and implemented. Once fully implemented, NCFAST is projected to save administrative costs for counties.

Effective July 1, 2013 the hospital provider assessment plan will be modified so the State's retention will be 25.9% o the total assessment paid by hospitals instead of a stated amount of $43,000,000.

56

Hospital Base Rates

Recalibrate the hospital inpatient payment system so that the base rates will be regionally set for all hospitals in that region to eliminate the disparity in rates for the same services between hospitals that exist in the current system. Hospital inpatient services are paid based on a diagnosis related group (DRG) system. There are 746 DRG's in the

Medicaid program that represent classifications of services provided during an inpatient hospitalization. Each of the 746 DRG's has a weight that represents the relative resources required for services related to that diagnosis, recipient age, sex and the presence of complications or comorbidities. Hospital payment is determined by applying a base rate, unique to each hospital, to the DRG weight. The hospital base rates were developed using each hospital's costs in

1994. Changes to these base rates have only occurred when the

General Assembly has approved an increase or decrease in rates.

DHHS will work with hospitals to identify appropriate regional differences and define regional definitions.

57

DHHS will work with providers to develop a shared savings plan that will be implemented by January 1, 2015 that will include incentives to provide effective and efficient care that results in positive outcomes for Medicaid recipients. In FY 2013-14 the State share of the amount withheld will be $14.7 million. This represents a total impact of $41.9 million in provider payments, including both the State and federal shares. In FY 2014-15 the State share of the withhold will be $30.6 million, providers will be eligible for shared savings that are projected to total $8.9 million and the impact of the shared savings plan on expenditures is projected to be $15.1 million.

NC State Crime Lab.

52

Fund support. These positions were previously supported by receipts from Golden L.E.A.F. and the Tobacco Trust Fund. Another receipt supported attorney position that was vacant (60010423) is eliminated.

D. NC State Crime Laboratory

54

Toxicology Positions

Provides funding for 19 new toxicology positions in the Crime Lab to serve the western part of the State. The Crime Lab is directed to work with the Office of State Personnel to create a new apprentice level analyst position at a pay grade lower than that of Forensic Analyst I for trainee analysts.

Toxicology Outsourcing Funds

Provides funds for the outsourcing of toxicology cases to private lab service providers. Priority should be given to cases originating in the western part of the State to reduce the need for Crime Lab analysts from Raleigh and Greensboro to travel to those areas. If the

Department determines that outsourcing of toxicology cases is not feasible due to legal concerns involving analyst testimony, these funds may be redirected to increase toxicology analysis capabilities within the Crime Lab.

E. Training and Standards

57

Sheriffs' Education and Training Standards

Appropriates funds to support the Sheriffs' Education and Training

Standards Commission. Section 16C.6 transfers funds from the

Statewide Misdemeanant Confinement Fund to the General Fund for this purpose. This Commission is currently supported by a portion of the $2 court fee designated for law enforcement training. Those funds will now wholly support the Criminal Justice Education and Training

Standards Commission. These changes increase the funds available to DOJ to support both Standards Commissions.

58

Criminal Justice Education and Training

Section 18B.18 changes the allocation of the $2 court fee designated for law enforcement training and standards by directing that all of the funds go to the Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards

Commission (CJTS). Previously, those funds were split between the

Sheriffs' Standards Commission and CJTS. The appropriation of funds to support Sheriffs' Standards in the previous item allows for the redirection of all of the $2 court fee to CJTS, increasing the amount available to DOJ for the support of both Standards Commissions.

Prisoner Legal Services

Reduces funding for North Carolina Prisoner Legal Services to reflect the declining number of inmates incarcerated in the state's prison system.

61

Low-Level Misdemeanor Reclassification

Reclassifies low-level misdemeanors that rarely result in incarceration as Class 3 misdemeanors or infractions and modifies the sentencing structure for Class 3 misdemeanors so that the first three charges are fineable offenses. With no possibility of incarceration, these offenses do not require legal counsel.

62

Additional Private Assigned Counsel Funds

Allocates nonrecurring funds to pay private counsel assigned to represent indigent defendants, reducing a budget shortfall that has accumulated over several years. This budget shortfall creates a hardship for small business legal firms whose payments are delayed when State funding is exhausted before the end of the fiscal year.
