Policy Changes

Prior School Year Adjustments

One-time funding is provided for payments to school districts for pupil transportation in the 2018-19 school year. Apportionment payments for this purpose in fiscal year 2019 exceeded the 2019 supplemental budget by $29,500,000; the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction instead paid this amount to districts in fiscal year 2020. This funding is provided to maintain the initial fiscal year 2020 appropriation level. (General Fund - State)

Transportation Base Adjustment

Funding is provided to incorporate an increase to the prior year pupil transportation base over the amount that was assumed in the biennial budget. (General Fund - State, WA Opportunity Pathways Account - State)
