The amount of money received by a district as income from the permanent school fund for any year must be deducted from the general education aid earned by the district for the same year or from aid earned from other state sources.
The amount payable to any district from state sources for any one year may not be reduced below the amount payable as apportionment of the school endowment fund pursuant to sections 127A.32 to 127A.34.
Each year the amount of money apportioned to a district for that year pursuant to sections127A.34, subdivision 2, and 272.029, subdivision 6, must be deducted from the general education aid earned by that district for the same year or from aid earned from other state sources.
For districts that have revenue under sections 298.018; 298.225; 298.24 to 298.28, excluding 298.26 and 298.28, subdivision 4, paragraph (d); 298.34 to 298.39; 298.391 to 298.396; 298.405; and 477A.15, or any law imposing a tax upon severed mineral values; the general education aid must be reduced in the final adjustment payment by (1) the amount of the revenue recognized pursuant to those sections for the fiscal year to which the final adjustment is attributable, less (2) the amount that was calculated, pursuant to section 126C.48, subdivision 8, as a reduction of the levy attributable to the fiscal year to which the final adjustment is attributable. If the final adjustment of a district's general education aid for a fiscal year is a negative amount because of this subdivision, the next fiscal year's general education aid to that district must be reduced by this negative amount in the following manner: there must be withheld from each scheduled general education aid payment due the district in such fiscal year, 15 percent of the total negative amount, until the total negative amount has been withheld. The amount reduced from general education aid pursuant to this subdivision must reduce revenue in the fiscal year to which the final adjustment payment is attributable.
(a) The general education aid paid to a school district or charter school that failed to meet federal special education maintenance of effort for the previous fiscal year must be reduced by the amount that must be paid to the federal government due to the shortfall.
(b) The general education aid paid to school districts that were members of a cooperative that failed to meet federal special education maintenance of effort must be reduced by the amount that must be paid to the federal government due to the shortfall. The commissioner must apportion the aid reduction amount to the member school districts based on each district's individual shortfall in maintaining effort, and on each member district's proportionate share of any shortfall in expenditures made by the cooperative. Each district's proportionate share of shortfall in expenditures made by the cooperative must be calculated using the adjusted marginal pupil units of each member school district.
(c) The amounts recovered under this subdivision shall be paid to the federal government to meet the state's obligations resulting from the district's, charter school's, or cooperative's failure to meet federal special education maintenance of effort.
