MISSISSIPPI ADEQUATE EDUCATION PROGRAM FUNDING FORMULA (MAEP) AN OVERVIEW OF HOW THE FORMULA WORKS
The formula used to establish adequate current operation funding levels necessary for the programs of each school district to meet at least a C district on an accountability scale of A - F districts (Level III - Successful) as established by the State Board of Education regardless of the school districts geographic location. WHAT IS MAEP? 2
PURPOSE 3 Ensure that every Mississippi Child regardless of where he/she lives is afforded an adequate educational opportunity, as defined by the State Accountability System. In order to accomplish this the system must: Provide equity by recognizing differences in the ability to provide resources locally (EQUITY). Provide a level of resources necessary for an adequate education (ADEQUACY).
MAEP FUNDING FORMULA 4 1.ADA x Base Student Cost + At-Risk Component - Local Contribution + 8% Guarantee = MAEP Formula Allocation. 2.MAEP Formula Allocation + Add-On Programs = Total MAEP District Funding.
MAEP FORMULA PIECES 5
BASE STUDENT COST (BSC) CALCULATION 6 DISTRICT SELECTION PROCESS Districts determined to be successful and efficient in four areas of school operations are selected for determining the base student cost. Successful – Defined by the State Board of Education using current statistically relevant state assessment data.
BSC CALCULATION 7 DISTRICT SELECTION PROCESS Efficient - In each of the following Efficiency Components the statistical mean for all school districts is determined. 1.Instruction – Teachers per 1,000 students 2.Administration – Administrator/Staff ratio 3.Maintenance and Operations a) M&O spending per 100,000 square feet b) Maintenance staff per 100,000 square feet 4.Ancillary – Librarians and Counselors per 1,000 students

BSC CALCULATION 9 Districts that are one standard deviation above and two standard deviations below the mean (average) for each component are considered efficient. Districts that are both successful and efficient are used to calculate the average cost for each component.

BSC CALCULATION 11 The average cost for each component is calculated using expenditure data from the second preceding year. For the FY15 calculation, FY13 expenditure data was used.
BSC CALCULATION 12 MS Code details what costs are included for each cost component. Instructional Cost Component For the instructional cost component, the Department of Education shall select districts that have been identified as instructionally successful and have a ratio of a number of teachers per one thousand students that is between one standard deviation above the mean and two standard deviations below the mean of the statewide average of teachers per one thousand students. The instructional cost component shall be calculated by dividing latest available months 1-9 ADA into the instructional expenditures of these selected districts.
BSC CALCULATION 13 MS Code : For the purpose of this calculation, the Department of education shall use the following funds, functions, and objects: Instructional Cost Component FUND FUNCTION OBJECT , 1220, & ALL 210 & ALL 210 & 215

BSC CALCULATION 16 To provide stability for appropriation and budgeting purposes, the base student cost will be calculated every four years rather than each year. (In FY11 and FY15) An inflation component of 40% of the base student cost times the current CPI is added to the previous years Base Student Cost to arrive at the new Base Student Cost during years between a complete recalculation.
BSC CALCULATION 17 Example – FY 2014 MAEP Base Student Cost was calculated as follows: FY 13 BSC X 40% X CPI = FY 13 Inflation Component $5, X.40 X.0217 = $43.56 FY 14 Base Student Cost is: $5, $ $42.49(PERS) = $5, $5, $51.20(more PERS) = $5,155.19
MAEP FORMULA ALLOCATION PROCESS 18 Allocation of MAEP formula dollars to local school districts is determined as follows: ADA (months 2 and 3 of school year prior to fiscal year appropriation) x Base Student Cost + At-risk Component - Local Contribution + 8 % Guarantee = MAEP District Allocation.
MAEP FORMULA ALLOCATION PROCESS 19 AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE Grades K-12 Months 2 and 3 Of Preceding Year. Excludes self-contained Special Education ADA.
MAEP FORMULA ALLOCATION PROCESS 20 High Growth Component - For any district that has positive growth in ADA each year over the 3-year period prior to the appropriation, the average percent of growth in ADA over those 3 years is multiplied times the most recent months 2 and 3 ADA and the result is added back to the ADA for that district.
MAEP FORMULA ALLOCATION PROCESS 21 High Growth Example from FY14 FY10 ADA (mo 2&3) FY11 ADA (mo 2&3) FY12 ADA (mo 2&3) FY13 ADA (mo 2&3) 1, , , , % increase Average increase %5.5883%4.9295%4.3929% Average increaseFY13 ADA (mo 2&3) Additional ADA For High Growth FY13 ADA To use in calc %2, ,341.23
MAEP FORMULA ALLOCATION PROCESS 22 AT-RISK COMPONENT 5% of the base student cost multiplied by the number of free lunch participants on November 30 of preceding year. The resulting dollar amount is added to MAEP formula allocation prior to the calculation of local contribution.
MAEP FORMULA ALLOCATION PROCESS 23 LOCAL CONTRIBUTION Uses 2 nd Preceding Years Data Yield From 28 Mills + Ad Valorem In Lieu Payments Capped at 27% of the MAEP Formula Cost Including the At-Risk Component

MAEP FORMULA ALLOCATION PROCESS 25 8% GUARANTEE Incorporated to ensure that a district receives a formula allocation equal to at least what they received in FY2002 for funding programs replaced by MAEP (Minimum Program, Equity Funding, Uniform Millage Assistance) plus 8%.
