## Example of Ranking Schools & Allocating Funds in an LEA Serving Schools Below 35% Poverty (125% Rule Applies)

Example 1 Note: Totals may not add due to rounding. 11-May-95
Per-Pupil 125% Calculation: To determine the amount per child, divide the LEA's allocation (\$2,366,381) by its total number of children from low-income families (2,618) to arrive at an amount per poverty child (\$903.89). Multiply this amount by 1.25 to determine the minimum per-child payment (\$1,12986) for each attendance area (see table below).
LEA Allocation

\$ Per Poverty Child
\$2,366,381 Divided By 2,618 = \$903.89 X 125% = \$1,129.86

Reservations
Neglected - \$10,000
1% parent involvement - \$23,664
