|Top Previous Next|
Schedule C: Designation of 2015-16 Textbook, Software, Library Materials and Instructional Hardware Expenses used for 2016-17 Instructional Materials Aids.
1.This new schedule reflects 2011 statutory amendments to these aid areas. The legislation is explained here
2.Please do not complete this schedule if the total expense reported for each instructional materials area (Items 1A through 1D) equals or exceeds the corresponding maximum allocation (Items 2A through 2D). This is because if the reported expense in each category equals or exceeds the maximum instructional materials aid to be received, there is no benefit to be derived from re-designating expenses.

Designation of Textbook, Software, Library Materials and Hardware Expense
Column 1: District Reported Expense: This column displays total district reported ST-3 expenditures for each category that are eligible for aid, except that the instructional hardware expense represents eligible reported ST-3 expenditures after any repair and staff development expenses have been capped at 20% of the maximum allocation.
Also, note that the Column 1 expenditure have been adjusted to remove any expenditures funded with monies from the Microsoft Settlement NYS School Technology Voucher Program as reported to State Aid via 2016-17 SAMS, ST-3, Schedule A5: General Fund Expenditures for the Microsoft NYS School Technology Voucher Program.
Column 2: Maximum Aid Allocations: The maximum allocation for each area is the appropriate district enrollment for the aid area multiplied by $58.25, $14.98 or $6.25 for Textbook, Software and Library Aids, respectively. The maximum allocation for Hardware Aid equals enrollment multiplied by $24.20.
Column 3: District Designated 2015-16 Expense for Instructional Materials Aids Calculations
For items 3A (Textbooks), 3B (Software), and 3D (Hardware):
•Designated expense may exceed the reported ST-3 expense within individual materials areas, but total designated expense (3E) may not exceed total reported ST-3 expense (1E)
•Reported expense in one materials area may be designated for aid purposes as expense in one or more of the other areas. This may be advantageous in cases where the reported ST-3 expenditures for a given category exceed the maximum allocation and expenditures in another category are less than the maximum allocation.
•Within individual materials areas, designated expense should not exceed the maximum aid allocation; if it does, aid will be limited to the maximum allocation
For item 3c. (Library Materials):
•Designated expense may not exceed the reported ST-3 expense
• If ST-3 reported expense exceeds the maximum allocation, the excess expense may be designated as expense in one of the other 3 areas.
• Designated expense should not exceed the maximum aid allocation; if it does, Library Materials Aid will be limited to the maximum allocation.
