Sec. 24.

  (1) From the state school aid fund money appropriated in section 11, there is allocated for 2020-2021an amount not to exceed $7,650,000.00 and there is allocated for 2021-2022 an amount not to exceed $7,650,000.00 for payments to the educating district or intermediate district for educating pupils assigned by a court or the department of health and human services to reside in or to attend a juvenile detention facility or child caring institution licensed by the department of health and human services and approved by the department to provide an on-grounds education program. The amount of the payment under this section to a district or intermediate district is calculated as prescribed under subsection (2).

  (2) The department shall allocate the total amount allocated under this section by paying to the educating district or intermediate district an amount equal to the lesser of the district’s or intermediate district’s added cost or the department’s approved per-pupil allocation for the district or intermediate district. For the purposes of this subsection:

  (a) “Added cost” means 100% of the added cost each fiscal year for educating all pupils assigned by a court or the department of health and human services to reside in or to attend a juvenile detention facility or child caring institution licensed by the department of health and human services or the department of licensing and regulatory affairs and approved by the department to provide an on-grounds education program. Added cost is computed by deducting all other revenue received under this article for pupils described in this section from total costs, as approved by the department, in whole or in part, for educating those pupils in the on-grounds education program or in a program approved by the department that is located on property adjacent to a juvenile detention facility or child caring institution. Costs reimbursed by federal funds are not included.

  (b) “Department’s approved per-pupil allocation” for a district or intermediate district is determined by dividing the total amount allocated under this section for a fiscal year by the full-time equated membership total for all pupils approved by the department to be funded under this section for that fiscal year for the district or intermediate district.

  (3) A district or intermediate district educating pupils described in this section at a residential child caring institution may operate, and receive funding under this section for, a department-approved on-grounds educational program for those pupils that is longer than 181 days, but not longer than 233 days, if the child caring institution was licensed as a child caring institution and offered in 1991-92 an on-grounds educational program that was longer than 181 days but not longer than 233 days and that was operated by a district or intermediate district.

  (4) Special education pupils funded under section 53a are not funded under this section.

It assumes the invalid creation of a continuing appropriation. Therefore, the following sections of the school aid act and their associated allocations must be considered inoperative: 24, 55, 74, 75, 105a, 111, and 116. These sections will be treated as excluded from the current bill… .”In subsection (2), as amended by Act 297 of 2000, the last sentence “In addition, a district or intermediate district that received funds under this subsection for 1998-99 for an on-grounds educational program that is longer than 181 days but not longer than 233 days shall continue to receive funds under this section for subsequent fiscal years for that program” was vetoed by the governor July 26, 2000.In the first and second sentences of subsection (1), as amended by Act 121 of 2001, the phrases “and for 2002-2003” and “and $8,900,000.00 for 2002-2003” were vetoed by the governor September 28, 2001.Enacting section 3 of Act 521 of 2002 provides:“Enacting section 3.
