  5. 5. Historical Changes to EMID Funding July 1, 2003 – EMID receives $46 per pupil served in integration revenue from each of its suburban district members generating $3.6 million annually for the collaborative. July 1, 2008 – EMID Board takes action to remove operating levy dollars from tuition calculation for students attending the EMID schools resulting in a loss of $800,000 in tuition revenue annually. To partially offset this decrease in funding, the Board increases the amount of integration revenue sent to the EMID collaborative by the suburban partners from $46 per pupil unit to $52 per pupil unit resulting in an increase of $400,000 in integration revenue. July 1, 2009 – North St. Paul leaves the collaborative and Spring Lake Park becomes a full member resulting in net reduction of $400,000 in annual integration revenue. July 1, 2010 – Mahtomedi leaves and Forest Lake joins the collaborative generating an additional $400,000 in additional integration revenue. July 1, 2012 – EMID Board takes action reducing the per pupil amount of the integration revenue being sent to the collaborative from $52 per pupil unit to $30 per pupil unit. In addition, it is decided that integration revenue will no longer be used to support the magnet schools but rather redirected to support the 115,000 students being served by the member districts throughout EMID resulting in an annual reduction of $1.6 Million in revenues.
  6. 6. Funding the Schools •EMID Schools are funded using general education dollars including the “backpack” or formula dollars, certain categorical aids including compensatory aid, special education aid, and federal Title dollars. •Funds are generated by student’s attendance at the EMID Schools but the dollars flow to the member district of residence for each student •EMID bills each of its member districts for the general education dollars generated by their resident students attending the EMID Schools •Special Education aids and Title Grant monies are sent directly to EMID from MDE •The average tuition amount is $5,391 per pupil unit
  7. 7. Challenges to EMID Funding •EMID Schools are funded using general education dollars including the “backpack” or formula dollars, certain categorical aids including compensatory aid, special education aid, and federal Title dollars. •Funds are generated by student’s attendance at the EMID Schools but the dollars flow to the member district of residence for each student •EMID bills each of its member districts for the general education dollars generated by their resident students attending the EMID Schools •Special Education aids and Title Grant monies are sent directly to EMID from MDE •The average tuition amount is $5,391 per pupil unit
  8. 8. Why did EMID decide to close the schools? •Change in demographics in the member districts have driven an increased demand in member district needs and the associated financial resources •Member districts are more integrated and better equipped to serve their resident students needs •Ongoing strategic planning is focusing on member services to provide increased support to the member districts and the 115,000 students served within the districts •The shift in EMID’s mission reduces annual revenue for school programs by $1.6M annually
  9. 9. Why did EMID decide to close the schools? •No local levy authority EMID would need to generate $800 -$1,000 per pupil unit for all member district’s resident students attending the magnet schools to sustain current programming level •Enrollment at secondary grade levels •Choice Schools •Uncertainty regarding future of integration revenue •Sustainability into the future
