regardless of their actual place of residency.  The SSF distribution for school districts is computed according to ORS 327.013.  

For students with disabilities, all SSF are distributed to the resident school district (the district in which the parent/guardian resides.), which then redistributes the funds to the charter school. The effect of the 11% CAP on the District’s state school funds is not considered in determining these distributions.  Districts must establish the payment arrangements with the charter school and the payments must equal at least the amounts below.3  

For students on an IEP residing within the sponsoring District:

Grades K-8 students:  The sponsoring district pays the charter school 40% of its General Purpose grant per Average Daily Membership weighted (ADMw).  

Grades 9-12 student:  The sponsoring district pays the charter school 47.5% of its General Purpose grant per Average Daily Membership weighted (ADMw).  

For students on an IEP residing outside the sponsoring district:

Grades K-8 student:  The resident district pays the charter school 40% of its General Purpose grant per Average Daily Membership weighted (ADMw).

Grades 9-12 student:  The resident district pays the charter school 47.5% of its General Purpose grant per Average Daily Membership weighted (ADMw).  The resident district also pays the sponsoring district five percent of its General Purpose grant per Average Daily Membership weighted (ADMw) for each ADMw for this student.

How are federal IDEA funds distributed for students with disabilities?

Federal IDEA funds are distributed to the school district designated as responsible for the provision of special education and related services or a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).  In Oregon this is the resident school district of the student with disabilities.  Charter school students with disabilities are included on the Special Education Child Count (SECC) of the resident district.  

An updated Charter School Handbook is available online (http://www.ode.state.or.us/opportunities/grants/nclb/title_V/b_charterschools/charterhandbook.pdf).  See page 40 of the handbook for a diagram of the flow of State School Fund Money to Charter Schools.   For further information, contact Rae Ann Ray at raeann.ray@state.or.us or Margaret Bates at margaret.bates@state.or.us .
