Attached is a worksheet showing the amount of Alternative Learning Environment (ALE) funding disbursed to each eligible school district in October 2009, in April 2010, and an amount to be disbursed in June 2010. ALE funding has typically been disbursed in two roughly equal payments. This year, because ALE funding exceeds the appropriation, funding will be disbursed in three payments. In October 2009, approximately 50% of the ALE funding amount was disbursed. In April, ALE funding up to the available appropriation was disbursed. At the end of June, pending approval of the appropriation transfer request by the Arkansas Legislative Council, the remaining $560,777 will be disbursed to eligible school districts as shown on the attached spreadsheet.

ALE funding is calculated pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. §6-20-2305(b)(2) (A) (i), “Beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, alternative learning environment funding shall be $4,063 multiplied by the number of identified alternative learning environment students enrolled during the previous school year.'
