FY12 Charter School Tuition and Enrollment Projections
Below you will find links to FY12 tuition and enrollment projections for charter schools and sending districts. It is our hope that this information will assist in the FY12 budget process for charter schools, school districts, and municipalities.
It is important to note some caveats that may affect the accuracy of these projections. While actual enrollment cannot exceed the projection reported by a given charter, enrollment by individual sending school districts may vary. Additionally, each sending district's tuition rate is a function of local spending and subject to change.
Pursuant to Chapter 12 of the Acts of 2010, An Act Relative to the Achievement Gap, the increased tuition aid formula, which determines how much aid districts receive when current charter tuition is greater than prior year charter tuition, is in the first year of a five year transition. The original formula reimburses districts 100 percent of the increase in tuition of the current year over the prior year, plus 60 percent of the prior year's 100 percent amount and 40 percent of the 100 percent from two year's prior. Beginning in FY12 districts will be receiving 100 percent of the increase in tuition over the prior year, plus 25 percent of the prior year's 100 percent amount and 40 percent of the 100 percent amount from two year's prior. A summary of the scheduled transition of the aid formula is as follows:
| ||Year 1||Year -1||Year -2||Year -3||Year -4 ||Year -5||Total|
