BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  [CORRECTION 1; REFERENDUM REDUCTION.] Laws 
1993, chapter 224, article 1, section 10, if enacted, is amended 
to read: 
    Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 124A.03, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 3b.  [REFERENDUM ALLOWANCE REDUCTION.] A district's 
referendum allowance under subdivision 1c is reduced by the 
amounts calculated in paragraphs (a), (b), and (c). 
    (a) The referendum allowance reduction equals the amount by 
which a district's supplemental revenue reduction exceeds the 
district's supplemental revenue allowance for fiscal year 1993. 
    (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), if a district's initial 
referendum allowance is less than ten percent of the formula 
allowance for that year, the reduction equals the lesser of (1) 
an amount equal to $100, or (2) the amount calculated in 
paragraph (a). 
    (c) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) or (b), a school 
district's referendum allowance reduction equals (1) an amount 
equal to $100, times (2) one minus the ratio of 20 percent of 
the initial referendum formula allowance limit minus the 
district's initial referendum allowance limit to 20 percent of 
the formula allowance for that year if: 
    (i) the district's adjusted net tax capacity for assessment 
year 1992 per actual pupil unit for fiscal year 1995 is less 
than $3,000; 
    (ii) the district's net unappropriated operating fund 
balance as of June 30, 1993, divided by the actual pupil units 
for fiscal year 1995 is less than $200; 
    (iii) the district's supplemental revenue allowance for 
fiscal year 1993 is equal to zero; and 
    (iv) the district's initial referendum revenue authority 
for the current year divided by the district's net tax capacity 
for assessment year 1992 is greater than ten percent. 
    Sec. 2.  [CORRECTION 2; SPARSITY; NETT LAKE.] Laws 1993, 
chapter 224, article 1, section 14, if enacted, is amended to 
read: 
    Sec. 14.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 124A.22, 
subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 5.  [DEFINITIONS.] The definitions in this 
subdivision apply only to subdivisions 6 and 6a.  
    (a) "High school" means a secondary school that has pupils 
enrolled in at least the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.  If there 
is no secondary school in the district that has pupils enrolled 
in at least the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades, and the school is 
at least 19 miles from the next nearest school, the commissioner 
shall designate one school in the district as a high school for 
the purposes of this section. 
    (b) "Secondary average daily membership" means, for a 
district that has only one high school, the average daily 
membership of resident pupils in grades 7 through 12.  For a 
district that has more than one high school, "secondary average 
daily membership" for each high school means the product of the 
average daily membership of resident pupils in grades 7 through 
12 in the high school, times the ratio of six to the number of 
grades in the high school. 
    (c) "Attendance area" means the total surface area of the 
district, in square miles, divided by the number of high schools 
in the district.  For a district that does not operate a high 
school and is less than 19 miles from the nearest operating high 
school, the attendance area equals zero. 
    (d) "Isolation index" for a high school means the square 
root of one-half the attendance area plus the distance in miles, 
according to the usually traveled routes, between the high 
school and the nearest high school.  
    (e) "Qualifying high school" means a high school that has 
an isolation index greater than 23 and that has secondary 
average daily membership of less than 400.  
    (f) "Qualifying elementary school" means an elementary 
school that is located 19 miles or more from the nearest 
elementary school or from the nearest elementary school within 
the district and, in either case, has an elementary average 
daily membership of an average of 20 or fewer per grade. 
    (g) "Elementary average daily membership" means, for a 
district that has only one elementary school, the average daily 
membership of resident pupils in kindergarten through grade 6.  
For a district that has more than one elementary school, 
"average daily membership" for each school means the average 
daily membership of kindergarten through grade 6 multiplied by 
the ratio of seven to the number of grades in the elementary 
school. 
    Sec. 3.  [CORRECTION 3; CLASS SIZE REVENUE; ALLOCATION.] 
Laws 1993, chapter 224, article 1, section 18, subdivision 1, if 
enacted, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [REVENUE.] (a) Of a district's general 
education revenue an amount equal to the sum of the number of 
elementary pupil units defined in section 124.17, subdivision 1, 
clause (f) and kindergarten pupil units as defined in section 
124.17, subdivision 1, clause (e), times .03 for fiscal year 
1994 and .06 for fiscal year 1995 and thereafter times the 
formula allowance must be reserved according to this section. 
    (b) For fiscal year 1995, a district that is not subject to 
a supplemental revenue reduction under section 17 or a 
referendum revenue reduction under section 10 must reserve an 
additional amount of revenue equal to $100 must reserve an 
additional amount equal to the greater of 
    (i) $0, or 
    (ii) $100 minus the sum of the reduction for supplemental 
revenue under section 17 and the reduction for referendum 
revenue under section 10 times the district's actual pupil units 
times the ratio of the district's elementary average daily 
membership to the district's average daily membership according 
to this section.  The revenue must be placed in a learning and 
development reserved account and may only be used according to 
this section. 
    (c) The ratio in paragraph (a) for fiscal year 1995 is 
adjusted by adding an amount equal to the ratio of the 
difference between the formula allowance for fiscal year 1995 
minus 3,150 to 10,000.

either academy for salaries of these instructional aides under
