115.995 State aids.
115.995 State aids. Upon receipt of the report under s. 115.993, if the state superintendent is satisfied that the bilingual-bicultural education program for the previous school year was maintained in accordance with this subchapter, the state superintendent shall do all of the following:
(1) From the appropriation under s. 20.255 (2) (cc), divide proportionally, based upon costs reported under s. 115.993, an annual payment of $250,000 among school districts whose enrollments in the previous school year were at least 15 percent limited-English proficient pupils. Aid paid under this subsection does not reduce aid paid under sub. (2).
(2) Certify to the department of administration in favor of the school district a sum equal to a percentage of the amount expended on limited-English proficient pupils by the school district during the preceding year for salaries of personnel participating in and attributable to bilingual-bicultural education programs under this subchapter, special books and equipment used in the bilingual-bicultural programs and other expenses approved by the state superintendent. The percentage shall be determined by dividing the amount in the appropriation under s. 20.255 (2) (cc) in the current school year less $250,000 by the total amount of aidable costs in the previous school year.
