The basic alternative teacher compensation aid for a charter school with a plan approved

Revenue amount.

An American Indian-controlled tribal contract or grant school
that is located on a reservation within the state and that complies with the requirements in
subdivision 1 is eligible to receive tribal contract or grant school aid. The amount of aid is
derived by:

(1) multiplying the formula allowance under section 126C.10, subdivision 2, less $170,
times the difference between (i) the resident pupil units as defined in section 126C.05,
subdivision 6

and (ii) the number of pupils for the current school year, weighted according to section
126C.05, subdivision 1, receiving benefits under section 123B.42 or 123B.44 or for which
the school is receiving reimbursement under section 124D.69;

(2) adding to the result in clause (1) an amount equal to the product of the formula
allowance under section 126C.10, subdivision 2, less $300 times the tribal contract
compensation revenue pupil units;

(3) subtracting from the result in clause (2) the amount of money allotted to the school
by the federal government through Indian School Equalization Program of the Bureau of
Indian Affairs, according to Code of Federal Regulations, title 25, part 39, subparts A to E,

board training, student training, interim maintenance and minor repair, interim administration
cost, prekindergarten, and operation and maintenance, and the amount of money that is
received according to section 124D.69;

(4) dividing the result in clause (3) by the sum of the resident pupil units in average daily
membership, excluding section 126C.05, subdivision 13, plus the tribal contract compensation
revenue pupil units; and

(5) multiplying the sum of the resident pupil units, including section 126C.05, subdivision
