CORRECTION The article about the school funding equalization formula in the May 9 edition of The New Era contained an error. It should have stated that the State School Fund formula uses teacher experience to calculate the funding rate. Counting all schools in Sweet Home, the district has an average experience of 11.9 years, while the Sweet Home Charter School has an average experience of 3.8 years. which reduces the overill average experience. Sweet Home loses some $68,600 in the fOrmula, District 55 Business Manager Kevin Strong said. because it is required to pay the Charter School as if its teach- ers had 11.9 years of experience instead of 3.8 years. The poverty factor adjustment for charter schools is a separate is- sue. Currently, the state school fund formula assumes that a char- ter school has the same percentage of students in poverty as the entire district. This information is gathered using census data. not free and reduced lunch eligibility informa- tion. Strong suggested that the payment to the charter school for its portion of the poverty fac- tor should be calculated using the charter school's free and reduced eligibility information compared to the district-wide average to get a more accurate figure.
