Code of the District of Columbia

§ 38–2905.01. Supplement to foundation level funding on the basis of the count of at-risk students.

(a) In addition to the grade level and supplemental allocations provided pursuant to §§ 38-2904 and 38-2905, additional allocations shall be provided on the basis of the count of students identified as at-risk.

(b) The additional allocations required by subsection (a) of this section shall be calculated by applying weighting factors, as determined by the Mayor, to the foundation level.

(c) The weighting factors for at-risk students shall be applied cumulatively in the counts of students who fall into more than one of the formula weighting categories; provided, that for students identified as both at-risk and as participating in an alternative program or as adult learners, only the alternative program weighting shall apply.

(c-1) To ensure alignment between the alternative program and at-risk weighting factors, the alternative program weighting factor should be amended whenever the grades 9-12, at-risk, or at-risk high school over-age supplement weighting factors are amended.

(d) By March 31, 2024, and annually thereafter, every local education agency that is allocated funds pursuant to this section shall provide the Office of the State Superintendent of Education with data related to expenditures of such funds for the previous school year consistent with reporting standards established by the Department of Education pursuant to § 38-191(b)(10).
