              Sec. 201. 2002 c 371 s 201 (uncodified) is amended to read as follows:

              FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES. (1) Appropriations made in this act to the department of social and health services shall initially be allotted as required by this act. Subsequent allotment modifications shall not include transfers of moneys between sections of this act except as expressly provided in this act, nor shall allotment modifications permit moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose to be used for other than that purpose, except as expressly provided in subsection (3) of this section.

              (2) The department of social and health services shall not initiate any services that will require expenditure of state general fund moneys unless expressly authorized in this act or other law. The department may seek, receive, and spend, under RCW 43.79.260 through 43.79.282, federal moneys not anticipated in this act as long as the federal funding does not require expenditure of state moneys for the program in excess of amounts anticipated in this act. If the department receives unanticipated unrestricted federal moneys, those moneys shall be spent for services authorized in this act or in any other legislation providing appropriation authority, and an equal amount of appropriated state general fund moneys shall lapse. Upon the lapsing of any moneys under this subsection, the office of financial management shall notify the legislative fiscal committees. As used in this subsection, "unrestricted federal moneys" includes block grants and other funds that federal law does not require to be spent on specifically defined projects or matched on a formula basis by state funds.

              (3)(a) The appropriations to the department of social and health services in this act shall be expended for the programs and in the amounts specified in this act. However, after May 1, 2002, unless specifically prohibited by this act, the department may transfer general fund--state appropriations for fiscal year 2002 among programs after approval by the director of financial management; and after May 1, 2003, the department may transfer general fund--state appropriations for fiscal year 2003 among programs after such approval. However, the department shall not transfer state moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose except as expressly provided in subsection (3)(b) of this section.

              (b) To the extent that transfers under subsection (3)(a) of this section are insufficient to fund actual expenditures in excess of fiscal year 2002 or fiscal year 2003 caseload forecasts and utilization assumptions in the medical assistance, long-term care, foster care, adoption support, and child support programs, the department may transfer state moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose after approval by the director of financial management.

              (c) The director of financial management shall notify the appropriate fiscal committees of the senate and house of representatives in writing prior to approving any allotment modifications.

              (4) In the event the department receives additional unrestricted federal funds or achieves savings in excess of that anticipated in this act, the department shall use up to $5,000,000 of such funds to initiate a pilot project providing integrated support services to homeless individuals needing mental health services, alcohol or substance abuse treatment, medical care, or who demonstrate community safety concerns. Before such a pilot project is initiated, the department shall notify the fiscal committees of the legislature of the plans for such a pilot project including the source of funds to be used.

The study shall examine the prevalence and needs of families who are raising related children and shall compare services and policies of Washington state with other states that have a higher rate of kinship care placements in lieu of foster care placements.

Within the amounts provided for foster care, the department shall increase the basic rate for foster care to an average of $420 per month on July 1, 2001. The department shall use the remaining funds provided in this subsection to pay for increases in the cost per case for foster care and adoption support.

              The appropriations in this subsection are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (a) Regional support networks shall use portions of the general fund--state appropriation for implementation of working agreements with the vocational rehabilitation program which will maximize the use of federal funding for vocational programs.

              (b) From the general fund--state appropriations in this subsection, the secretary of social and health services shall assure that regional support networks reimburse the aging and adult services program for the general fund--state cost of medicaid personal care services that enrolled regional support network consumers use because of their psychiatric disability.

              (c) $388,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2002, $2,829,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2003, and $3,157,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for development and operation of community residential and support services for persons whose treatment needs constitute substantial barriers to community placement and who no longer require active psychiatric treatment at an inpatient hospital level of care, no longer meet the criteria for inpatient involuntary commitment, and who are clinically ready for discharge from a state psychiatric hospital. In the event that enough patients are not transitioned or diverted from the state hospitals to close at least two hospital wards by July 2002, and four additional wards by April 2003, a proportional share of these funds shall be transferred to the appropriations in subsection (2) of this section to support continued care of the patients in the state hospitals. Primary responsibility and accountability for provision of appropriate community support for persons placed with these funds shall reside with the mental health program and the regional support networks, with partnership and active support from the alcohol and substance abuse and from the aging and adult services programs. The department shall negotiate performance- based incentive contracts to provide appropriate community support services for individuals leaving the state hospitals under this subsection. The department shall first seek to contract with regional support networks before offering a contract to any other party. The funds appropriated in this subsection shall not be considered "available resources" as defined in RCW 71.24.025 and are not subject to the standard allocation formula applied in accordance with RCW 71.24.035(13)(a).

              (d) At least $1,000,000 of the federal block grant funding appropriated in this subsection shall be used for (i) initial development, training, and operation of the community support teams which will work with long-term state hospital residents prior and subsequent to their return to the community; and (ii) development of support strategies which will reduce the unnecessary and excessive use of state and local hospitals for short-term crisis stabilization services. Such strategies may include training and technical assistance to community long-term care and substance abuse providers; the development of diversion beds and stabilization support teams; examination of state hospital policies regarding admissions; and the development of new contractual standards to assure that the statutory requirement that 85 percent of short-term detentions be managed locally is being fulfilled. The department shall report to the fiscal and policy committees of the legislature on the results of these efforts by November 1, 2001, and again by November 1, 2002.

              (e) The department is authorized to implement a new formula for allocating available resources among the regional support networks. The distribution formula shall use the number of persons eligible for the state medical programs funded under chapter 74.09 RCW as the measure of the requirement for the number of acutely mentally ill, chronically mentally ill, severely emotionally disturbed children, and seriously disturbed in accordance with RCW 71.24.035(13)(a). The new formula shall be phased in over a period of no less than six years. Furthermore, the department shall increase the medicaid capitation rates which a regional support network would otherwise receive under the formula by an amount sufficient to assure that total funding allocated to the regional support network in fiscal year 2002 increases by up to 3.5 percent over the amount actually paid to that regional support network in fiscal year 2001, and by up to an additional 5.0 percent in fiscal year 2003, if total funding to the regional support network would otherwise increase by less than those percentages under the new formula, and provided that the nonfederal share of the higher medicaid payment rate is provided by the regional support network from local funds.

              (f) Within funds appropriated in this subsection, the department shall contract with the Clark county regional support network for development and operation of a project demonstrating collaborative methods for providing intensive mental health services in the school setting for severely emotionally disturbed children who are medicaid eligible. Project services are to be delivered by teachers and teaching assistants who qualify as, or who are under the supervision of, mental health professionals meeting the requirements of chapter 275-57 WAC. The department shall increase medicaid payments to the regional support network by the amount necessary to cover the necessary and allowable costs of the demonstration, not to exceed the upper payment limit specified for the regional support network in the department's medicaid waiver agreement with the federal government after meeting all other medicaid spending requirements assumed in this subsection. The regional support network shall provide the department with (i) periodic reports on project service levels, methods, and outcomes; and (ii) an intergovernmental transfer equal to the state share of the increased medicaid payment provided for operation of this project.

              (g) The health services account appropriation is provided solely for implementation of strategies which the department and the affected regional support networks conclude will best assure continued availability of community-based inpatient psychiatric services in all areas of the state. Such strategies may include, but are not limited to, emergency contracts for continued operation of inpatient facilities otherwise at risk of closure because of demonstrated uncompensated care; start-up grants for development of evaluation and treatment facilities; and increases in the rate paid for inpatient psychiatric services for medically indigent and/or general assistance for the unemployed patients. The funds provided in this subsection must be: (i) Prioritized for use in those areas of the state which are at greatest risk of lacking sufficient inpatient psychiatric treatment capacity, rather than being distributed on a formula basis; (ii) prioritized for use by those hospitals which do not receive low-income disproportionate share hospital payments as of the date of application for funding; and (iii) matched on a one-quarter local, three-quarters state basis by funding from the regional support network or networks in the area in which the funds are expended. Payments from the amount provided in this subsection shall not be made to any provider that has not agreed that, except for prospective rate increases, the payment shall offset, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, any liability that may be established against, or any settlement that may be agreed to by the state, regarding the rate of state reimbursement for inpatient psychiatric care. The funds provided in this subsection shall not be considered "available resources" as defined in RCW 71.24.025 and are not subject to the distribution formula established pursuant to RCW 71.24.035.

              (((i))) (h) The department shall assure that each regional support network increases spending on direct client services in fiscal years 2002 and 2003 by at least the same percentage as the total state, federal, and local funds allocated to the regional support network in those years exceeds the amounts allocated to it in fiscal year 2001.

              (((j))) (i) The department shall reduce state funding otherwise payable to a regional support network in fiscal years 2002 and 2003 by the full amount by which the regional support network's reserves and fund balances as of December 31, 2001, exceed the required risk reserve for that regional support network. The required reserve amount shall be calculated by applying the risk reserve percentage specified in the department's contract with the regional support network to the total state and federal revenues for which the regional support network would otherwise be eligible in accordance with this subsection. As used in this subsection, "reserves" does not include capital project reserves established in accordance with state accounting and reporting standards before January 1, 2002.

              The appropriations in this subsection are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (a) The state mental hospitals may use funds appropriated in this subsection to purchase goods and supplies through hospital group purchasing organizations when it is cost-effective to do so.

              (b) The mental health program at Western state hospital shall continue to use labor provided by the Tacoma prerelease program of the department of corrections.

              (c) The department shall seek to reduce the census of the two state psychiatric hospitals by 178 beds by April 2003 by arranging and providing community residential, mental health, and other support services for long-term state hospital patients whose treatment needs constitute substantial barriers to community placement and who no longer require active psychiatric treatment at an inpatient hospital level of care, no longer meet the criteria for inpatient involuntary commitment, and who are clinically ready for discharge from a state psychiatric hospital. No such patient is to move from the hospital until a team of community professionals has become familiar with the person and their treatment plan; assessed their strengths, preferences, and needs; arranged a safe, clinically-appropriate, and stable place for them to live; assured that other needed medical, behavioral, and social services are in place; and is contracted to monitor the person's progress on an ongoing basis. The department and the regional support networks shall endeavor to assure that hospital patients are able to return to their area of origin, and that placements are not concentrated in proximity to the hospitals.

              (d) For each month subsequent to the month in which a state hospital bed has been closed in accordance with (c) of this subsection, the mental health program shall transfer to the medical assistance program state funds equal to the state share of the monthly per capita expenditure amount estimated for categorically needy-disabled persons in the most recent forecast of medical assistance expenditures.

              (e) The department shall report to the appropriate committees of the legislature by November 1, 2001, and by November 1, 2002, on its plans for and progress toward achieving the objectives set forth in (c) of this subsection.

The legislature finds that providing cash assistance to individuals and families needing these supports promotes self-determination and independence. It is the intent of the legislature that the department shall comply with federal requirements to maintain aggregate funding for SSI state supplemental payments while promoting self-determination and independence for persons with developmental disabilities in families with taxable incomes at or below 150 percent of median family income. Individuals receiving family support or high school transition payments shall not become eligible for medical assistance under RCW 74.09.510 due solely to the receipt of SSI state supplemental payments.

The department shall ensure that the average cost per day for all program services other than start-up costs shall not exceed $280. If the number and timing of residents choosing to move into community settings is not sufficient to achieve the RHC cottage consolidation plan assumed in the appropriations in subsection (2) of this section, the department shall transfer sufficient appropriations from this subsection to subsection (2) of this section to cover the added costs incurred in the RHCs. The department shall report to the appropriate committees of the legislature, within 45 days following each fiscal year quarter, the number of residents moving into community settings and the actual expenditures for all community services to support those residents.

These materials shall be posted in all community service offices and distributed to families. Materials must be available in multiple languages. When a family leaves the temporary assistance for needy families program, receives cash diversion assistance, or withdraws a temporary assistance for needy families application, the department of social and health services shall educate them about the difference between cash assistance and work support benefits and offer them the opportunity to begin or to continue receiving work support benefits, so long as they are eligible. The department shall provide this information through in-person interviews, over the telephone, and/or through the mail. Work support benefits include food stamps, medicaid for all family members, medicaid or state children's health insurance program for children, and child care assistance. The department shall report annually to the legislature the number of families who have had exit interviews, been reached successfully by phone, and been sent mail. The report shall also include the percentage of families who elect to continue each of the benefits and the percentage found ineligible by each substantive reason code. A substantive reason code shall not be "other." The report shall identify barriers to informing families about work support benefits and describe existing and future actions to overcome such barriers.

              (c) From the amounts provided in this subsection, provide $50,000 from the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2002 and $50,000 from the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2003 to the Washington institute for public policy for continuation of the WorkFirst evaluation database.

              (4) $48,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2002 is provided solely to implement chapter 111, Laws of 2001 (veterans/Philippines).

              (5) The department shall apply the provisions of RCW 74.04.005(10) to simplify resource eligibility policy, make such policy consistent with other federal public assistance programs, and achieve the budgetary savings assumed in this section.

              (1) Each general fund fiscal year appropriation includes such funds as are necessary to complete the school year ending in the fiscal year and for prior fiscal year adjustments.

              (2) Allocations for certificated staff salaries for the 2001-02 and 2002-03 school years shall be determined using formula-generated staff units calculated pursuant to this subsection. Staff allocations for small school enrollments in (d) through (f) of this subsection shall be reduced for vocational full-time equivalent enrollments. Staff allocations for small school enrollments in grades K-6 shall be the greater of that generated under (a) of this subsection, or under (d) and (e) of this subsection. Certificated staffing allocations shall be as follows:

              (a) On the basis of each 1,000 average annual full-time equivalent enrollments, excluding full-time equivalent enrollment otherwise recognized for certificated staff unit allocations under (c) through (f) of this subsection:

              (i) Four certificated administrative staff units per thousand full- time equivalent students in grades K-12;

              (ii) 49 certificated instructional staff units per thousand full- time equivalent students in grades K-3;

              (iii) Forty-six certificated instructional staff units per thousand full-time equivalent students in grades 4-12; and

              (iv) An additional 4.2 certificated instructional staff units for grades K-3 and an additional 7.2 certificated instructional staff units for grade 4. Any funds allocated for the additional certificated units provided in this subsection (iv) shall not be considered as basic education funding;

              (v) For class size reduction and expanded learning opportunities under the better schools program, an additional 2.2 certificated instructional staff units for the 2001-02 school year and an additional 0.8 certificated instructional staff units for the 2002-03 school year for grades K-4 per thousand full-time equivalent students. Funds allocated for these additional certificated units shall not be considered as basic education funding. The allocation may be used for reducing class sizes in grades K-4 or to provide additional classroom contact hours for kindergarten, before-and-after-school programs, weekend school programs, summer school programs, and intercession opportunities to assist elementary school students in meeting the essential academic learning requirements and student assessment performance standards. For purposes of this subsection, additional classroom contact hours provided by teachers beyond the normal school day under a supplemental contract shall be converted to a certificated full-time equivalent by dividing the classroom contact hours by 900.

              (A) Funds provided under this subsection (2)(a)(iv) and (v) in excess of the amount required to maintain the statutory minimum ratio established under RCW 28A.150.260(2)(b) shall be allocated only if the district documents an actual ratio in grades K-4 equal to or greater than 55.4 certificated instructional staff per thousand full-time equivalent students in the 2001-02 school year and 54.0 certificated instructional staff per thousand full-time equivalent students in the 2002-03 school year. For any school district documenting a lower certificated instructional staff ratio, the allocation shall be based on the district's actual grades K-4 certificated instructional staff ratio achieved in that school year, or the statutory minimum ratio established under RCW 28A.150.260(2)(b), if greater;

              (B) Districts at or above 51.0 certificated instructional staff per one thousand full-time equivalent students in grades K-4 may dedicate up to 1.3 of the 55.4 funding ratio in the 2001-02 school year, and up to 1.3 of the 54.0 funding ratio in the 2002-03 school year, to employ additional classified instructional assistants assigned to basic education classrooms in grades K-4. For purposes of documenting a district's staff ratio under this section, funds used by the district to employ additional classified instructional assistants shall be converted to a certificated staff equivalent and added to the district's actual certificated instructional staff ratio. Additional classified instructional assistants, for the purposes of this subsection, shall be determined using the 1989-90 school year as the base year;

              (C) Any district maintaining a ratio in grades K-4 equal to or greater than 55.4 certificated instructional staff per thousand full- time equivalent students in the 2001-02 school year, and a ratio equal to or greater than 54.0 certificated instructional staff per thousand full-time equivalent students in the 2002-03 school year, may use allocations generated under this subsection (2)(a)(iv) and (v) in excess of that required to maintain the minimum ratio established under RCW 28A.150.260(2)(b) to employ additional basic education certificated instructional staff or classified instructional assistants in grades 5- 6. Funds allocated under this subsection (2)(a)(iv) and (v) shall only be expended to reduce class size in grades K-6. No more than 1.3 of the certificated instructional funding ratio amount may be expended for provision of classified instructional assistants;

              (b) For school districts with a minimum enrollment of 250 full-time equivalent students whose full-time equivalent student enrollment count in a given month exceeds the first of the month full-time equivalent enrollment count by 5 percent, an additional state allocation of 110 percent of the share that such increased enrollment would have generated had such additional full-time equivalent students been included in the normal enrollment count for that particular month;

              (c)(i) On the basis of full-time equivalent enrollment in:

              (A) Vocational education programs approved by the superintendent of public instruction, a maximum of 0.92 certificated instructional staff units and 0.08 certificated administrative staff units for each 19.5 full-time equivalent vocational students; and

              (g) For each nonhigh school district having an enrollment of more than seventy annual average full-time equivalent students and less than one hundred eighty students, operating a grades K-8 program or a grades 1-8 program, an additional one-half of a certificated instructional staff unit; and

              (h) For each nonhigh school district having an enrollment of more than fifty annual average full-time equivalent students and less than one hundred eighty students, operating a grades K-6 program or a grades 1-6 program, an additional one-half of a certificated instructional staff unit.

              (3) Allocations for classified salaries for the 2001-02 and 2002-03 school years shall be calculated using formula-generated classified staff units determined as follows:

              (a) For enrollments generating certificated staff unit allocations under subsection (2)(d) through (h) of this section, one classified staff unit for each three certificated staff units allocated under such subsections;

              (b) For all other enrollment in grades K-12, including vocational full-time equivalent enrollments, one classified staff unit for each sixty average annual full-time equivalent students; and

              (c) For each nonhigh school district with an enrollment of more than fifty annual average full-time equivalent students and less than one hundred eighty students, an additional one-half of a classified staff unit.

              (4) Fringe benefit allocations shall be calculated at a rate of 10.76 percent in the 2001-02 school year and 9.57 percent in the 2002- 03 school year for certificated salary allocations provided under subsection (2) of this section, and a rate of 12.73 percent in the 2001-02 school year and 12.36 percent in the 2002-03 school year for classified salary allocations provided under subsection (3) of this section.

              (8) Any school district board of directors may petition the superintendent of public instruction by submission of a resolution adopted in a public meeting to reduce or delay any portion of its basic education allocation for any school year. The superintendent of public instruction shall approve such reduction or delay if it does not impair the district's financial condition. Any delay shall not be for more than two school years. Any reduction or delay shall have no impact on levy authority pursuant to RCW 84.52.0531 and local effort assistance pursuant to chapter 28A.500 RCW.

              The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (1) Funding for special education programs is provided on an excess cost basis, pursuant to RCW 28A.150.390. School districts shall ensure that special education students as a class receive their full share of the general apportionment allocation accruing through sections 502 and 504 of this act. To the extent a school district cannot provide an appropriate education for special education students under chapter 28A.155 RCW through the general apportionment allocation, it shall provide services through the special education excess cost allocation funded in this section.

              (2)(a) Effective with the 2001-02 school year, the superintendent of public instruction shall change the S-275 personnel reporting system and all related accounting requirements to ensure that:

              (i) Special education students are basic education students first;

              (ii) As a class, special education students are entitled to the full basic education allocation; and

              (iii) Special education students are basic education students for the entire school day.

              (b) Effective with the 2001-02 school year, the S-275 and accounting changes shall supercede any prior excess cost methodologies and shall be required of all school districts.

              (3) Each fiscal year appropriation includes such funds as are necessary to complete the school year ending in the fiscal year and for prior fiscal year adjustments.

              (4) The superintendent of public instruction shall distribute state funds to school districts based on two categories: The optional birth through age two program for special education eligible developmentally delayed infants and toddlers, and the mandatory special education program for special education eligible students ages three to twenty- one. A "special education eligible student" means a student receiving specially designed instruction in accordance with a properly formulated individualized education program.

              (5)(a) For the 2001-02 and 2002-03 school years, the superintendent shall make allocations to each district based on the sum of:

              (i) A district's annual average headcount enrollment of developmentally delayed infants and toddlers ages birth through two, multiplied by the district's average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student, multiplied by 1.15; and

              (ii) A district's annual average full-time equivalent basic education enrollment multiplied by the funded enrollment percent determined pursuant to subsection (6)(b) of this section, multiplied by the district's average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student multiplied by 0.9309.

              (b) For purposes of this subsection, "average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student" for a district shall be based on the staffing ratios required by RCW 28A.150.260 and shall not include enhancements, secondary vocational education, or small schools.

              (6) The definitions in this subsection apply throughout this section.

              (a) "Annual average full-time equivalent basic education enrollment" means the resident enrollment including students enrolled through choice (RCW 28A.225.225) and students from nonhigh districts (RCW 28A.225.210) and excluding students residing in another district enrolled as part of an interdistrict cooperative program (RCW 28A.225.250).

              (b) "Enrollment percent" means the district's resident special education annual average enrollment, excluding the birth through age two enrollment, as a percent of the district's annual average full-time equivalent basic education enrollment.

              (i) For the 2001-02 school year, each district's funded enrollment percent shall be the lesser of the district's actual enrollment percent or 12.7 percent.

              (ii) For the 2002-03 school year, each district's general fund-- state funded special education enrollment shall be the lesser of the district's actual enrollment percent or 12.7 percent. Increases in enrollment percent from 12.7 percent to 13.0 percent shall be funded from the general fund--federal appropriation.

              (7) At the request of any interdistrict cooperative of at least 15 districts in which all excess cost services for special education students of the districts are provided by the cooperative, the maximum enrollment percent shall be calculated in accordance with subsection (6)(b) of this section, and shall be calculated in the aggregate rather than individual district units. For purposes of this subsection, the average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student shall be calculated in the aggregate rather than individual district units.

              (8) Safety net funding shall be awarded by the state safety net oversight committee subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (a) A maximum of $8,500,000 of the general fund--state appropriation and a maximum of $3,500,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation for fiscal year 2002 are provided as safety net funding for districts with demonstrated needs for state special education funding beyond the amounts provided in subsection (5) of this section. (b) The safety net oversight committee shall first consider the needs of districts adversely affected by the 1995 change in the special education funding formula. Awards shall be based on the lesser of the amount required to maintain the 1994-95 state special education excess cost allocation to the school district in aggregate or on a dollar per funded student basis.

              (c) The committee shall then consider unmet needs for districts that can convincingly demonstrate that all legitimate expenditures for special education exceed all available revenues from state funding formulas. In the determination of need, the committee shall also consider additional available revenues from federal and local sources. Differences in program costs attributable to district philosophy, service delivery choice, or accounting practices are not a legitimate basis for safety net awards.

              (d) The maximum allowable indirect cost for calculating safety net eligibility may not exceed the federal restricted indirect cost rate for the district plus one percent.

              (e) Safety net awards shall be adjusted based on the percent of potential medicaid eligible students billed as calculated by the superintendent in accordance with chapter 318, Laws of 1999.

              (f) Safety net awards must be adjusted for any audit findings or exceptions related to special education funding.

              (g) The superintendent may expend up to $120,000 of the amounts provided in this subsection (8) to provide staff assistance to the committee in analyzing applications for safety net funds received by the committee.

              (9) For fiscal year 2003 to the extent necessary, $12,873,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation is provided for safety net awards for districts with demonstrated needs for state special education funding beyond the amounts provided in subsection (5) of this section. If safety net awards exceed the amount appropriated in this subsection (9), the superintendent shall expend all available federal discretionary funds necessary to meet this need. Safety net funds shall be awarded by the state safety net oversight committee subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (a) The committee shall consider unmet needs for districts that can convincingly demonstrate that all legitimate expenditures for special education exceed all available revenues from state funding formulas. In the determination of need, the committee shall also consider additional available revenues from federal and local sources. Differences in program costs attributable to district philosophy, service delivery choice, or accounting practices are not a legitimate basis for safety net awards.

              (b) The committee shall then consider the extraordinary high cost needs of one or more individual special education students. Differences in costs attributable to district philosophy, service delivery choice, or accounting practices are not a legitimate basis for safety net awards.

              (c) The maximum allowable indirect cost for calculating safety net eligibility may not exceed the federal restricted indirect cost rate for the district plus one percent.

              (d) Safety net awards shall be adjusted based on the percent of potential medicaid eligible students billed as calculated by the superintendent in accordance with chapter 318, Laws of 1999.

              (e) Safety net awards must be adjusted for any audit findings or exceptions related to special education funding.

              (f) The superintendent may expend up to $120,000 of the amount provided from the general fund--federal appropriation in this subsection (9) to provide staff assistance to the committee in analyzing applications for safety net funds received by the committee.

              (10) The superintendent of public instruction may adopt such rules and procedures as are necessary to administer the special education funding and safety net award process. Prior to revising any standards, procedures, or rules, the superintendent shall consult with the office of financial management and the fiscal committees of the legislature.

              (11) The safety net oversight committee appointed by the superintendent of public instruction shall consist of:

              (a) One staff from the office of superintendent of public instruction;

              (b) Staff of the office of the state auditor;

              (c) Staff of the office of the financial management; and

              (d) One or more representatives from school districts or educational service districts knowledgeable of special education programs and funding.

              (12) To the extent necessary, in fiscal year 2002, $2,250,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation shall be expended for safety net funding to meet the extraordinary needs of one or more individual special education students. If safety net awards to meet the extraordinary needs exceed $2,250,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation, the superintendent shall expend all available federal discretionary funds necessary to meet this need. General fund--state funds shall not be expended for this purpose.

              (13) A maximum of $678,000 may be expended from the general fund-- state appropriations to fund 5.43 full-time equivalent teachers and 2.1 full-time equivalent aides at children's orthopedic hospital and medical center. This amount is in lieu of money provided through the home and hospital allocation and the special education program.

              (14) $1,000,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation is provided for projects to provide special education students with appropriate job and independent living skills, including work experience where possible, to facilitate their successful transition out of the public school system. The funds provided by this subsection shall be from federal discretionary grants.

              (15) The superintendent shall maintain the percentage of federal flow-through to school districts at 85 percent for the 2001-02 school year. For the 2002-03 school year, the superintendent shall allocate the federal funds as specified in this section and shall adjust federal flow-through funds accordingly. In addition to other purposes, school districts may use increased federal funds for high-cost students, for purchasing regional special education services from educational service districts, and for staff development activities particularly relating to inclusion issues.

              (16) A maximum of $1,200,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation may be expended by the superintendent for projects related to use of inclusion strategies by school districts for provision of special education services. The superintendent shall prepare an information database on laws, best practices, examples of programs, and recommended resources. The information may be disseminated in a variety of ways, including workshops and other staff development activities.

              (17) A school district may carry over from one year to the next year up to 10 percent of general fund--state funds allocated under this program; however, carry over funds shall be expended in the special education program.

              (18) The superintendent of public instruction shall implement the recommendations of the joint legislative audit and review committee study on special education (report 01-11) only to the extent that funds have been specifically provided therefor.

FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL ADMINISTRATION

              Tumwater Office Building 1 (01-S-003)


              The appropriation in this section is subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (1) Planning funds are provided to lease/develop a state office building of 150,000 to 200,000 square feet on state-owned property in Tumwater according to the terms of the agreement with the Port of Olympia when the property was acquired or within the preferred development/leasing areas in Thurston county. The building shall be constructed and financed so that agency occupancy costs will not exceed comparable private market rental rates. The comparable general office space rate shall be calculated based on the three latest Thurston county leases of new space of at least 100,000 rentable square feet adjusted for inflation as determined by the department of general administration. The department of general administration shall coordinate with potential state agency tenants whose current lease expire near the time of occupancy so that buyout of current leases do not add to state expense.

              (2) The department shall finance this project using a financing contract as authorized in section 907(2)(c), chapter 8, Laws of 2001 2nd sp. sess., with title passing to the state if all payments are made as provided in the contract. Should the department choose to use a financing contract that does not provide for the issuance of certificates of participation, the financing contract shall be subject to approval by the state finance committee as required by RCW 39.94.010. In approving a financing contract not providing for the use of certificates of participation, the state finance committee should be reasonably certain that the contract is excluded from the computation of indebtedness, particularly that the contract is not backed by the full faith and credit of the state and the legislature is expressly not obligated to appropriate funds to make payments. For purposes of this section, "financing contract" includes but is not limited to a certificate of participation and tax exempt financing similar to that authorized in RCW 47.79.140.
