(b) "Local revenues of an education service district" means the total of the following:

(D) Any positive amount obtained by subtracting the operating property taxes actually imposed by the district based on the rate certified pursuant to ORS 310.060 (Notice certifying taxes) from the amount that would have been imposed by the district if the district had certified the maximum rate of operating property taxes allowed by law.

(2) Each fiscal year, the Superintendent of Public Instruction shall calculate a State School Fund grant for each education service district as provided in this section.

(3)(a) Each fiscal year, the superintendent shall calculate the total amount appropriated or allocated to the State School Fund and available for distribution to school districts, education service districts and programs + total amount of local revenues of all school districts, computed as provided in ORS 327.013 (State School Fund distribution computations for school districts), + total amount of local revenues of all education service districts. The superintendent may not include in the calculation under this paragraph amounts recovered by the Department of Education from the State School Fund under ORS 343.243 (Recovery of amount from State School Fund for children enrolled in certain programs).

(b) The superintendent shall multiply the amount calculated under paragraph (a) of this subsection by 95.25 [bad link] percent.

(c) Based on the amount calculated under paragraph (b) of this subsection, the superintendent shall calculate a funding percentage to distribute as nearly as practicable under ORS 327.006 (Definitions) to 327.133 (Reports by districts), 327.348 (High Cost Disabilities Account), 327.355 (Definitions for ORS 327.357), 327.357 (Small school district grants) and 327.360 (Small School District Supplement Fund) the total amount calculated under paragraph (b) of this subsection as school district general purpose grants, facility grants, high cost disabilities grants and transportation grants to school districts.

(d) Based on the funding percentage calculated under paragraph (c) of this subsection, the superintendent shall calculate the general purpose grant, facility grant, transportation grant and high cost disabilities grant amounts for each school district.

(4) The general services grant for an education service district shall equal the higher of:

(a) The total amount calculated under subsection (3)(d) of this section for the component school districts of the education service district (4.75 [bad link] :SPLIT 95.25 [bad link]); or

(b) $1 million.

(5) Subject to subsection (6) of this section, the State School Fund grant for an education service district = general services grant :MINUS local revenues of the education service district.

(6)(a) After completing the calculations under subsections (2) to (5) of this section, the Superintendent of Public Instruction shall apportion from the State School Fund to each education service district an amount = (funding percentage general services grant) -local revenues of the education service district.

(b) The funding percentage used in paragraph (a) of this subsection shall be calculated by the superintendent to distribute as nearly as practicable the total amount available for distribution to education service districts from the State School Fund for each fiscal year.

(7) Notwithstanding subsections (5) and (6) of this section:

(a) The State School Fund grant of an education service district may not be less than zero; and

(b) The State School Fund grant of an education service district shall be in an amount that, when combined with the local revenues of the education service district, equals $1 million or more.
