18A:50-14. The apportionment of funds available shall be designated according to a plan submitted by the local educational agency to the Office of Adult and Continuing Education and High School Equivalency, of the New Jersey State Department of Education. Such plan submitted by the local educational agency shall include the costs of instructors' salaries, guidance and counseling services, as well as such items as instructional materials and other equipment needed in the operation and promotion of a local program. Payment by the State, in the form of aid to each program, shall be in an amount equal to these annual costs.
On or before November 15 of each year, the commissioner shall estimate the amount necessary to be appropriated to carry out the provisions of this act for the succeeding fiscal year, including costs for adequate State supervisory and administrative control, and needed personnel training.
The commissioner shall determine the amounts to be payable to each of the agencies eligible under this act for the succeeding fiscal year based upon the per student cost per hour of instruction.
On or before September 15 of the succeeding fiscal year, the commissioner shall make this final determination of the payments to be made under this act for said school year. An amount equal to 25% of the sum payable to each eligible agency shall be paid to the eligible agency on October 1, December 1, March 1 and May 1.
If such payments to any agency should exceed the amount to which such agency is entitled under this act, such excess shall be deducted by the commissioner from succeeding State aid payments to said agencies.
