§ 349.11. Aggregate Building Expenditure Standard; Act 34 of 1973.
(a) Rated pupil capacity. For the purpose of computing the aggregate building expenditure standard of a project, the rated pupil capacity shall be determined on the basis of the method used by the Department for school building reimbursement purposes during the school year 1971-1972.
(b) 1971-1972 method. Rated pupil capacity shall be determined in accordance with the following formulae:
(1) Elementary building. The rated pupil capacity for an elementary building equals the sum of the capacity points for classrooms, special education, kindergarten, in accordance with the following chart:
(2) Secondary building. The rated pupil capacity for a secondary building equals 85% of the sum of the capacity points of all teaching stations in accordance with the following chart:
(3) Addition to building. The rated pupil capacity of a substantial addition shall bear the same ratio to the total project capacity calculated in paragraphs (1) or (2), or both, of this subsection as the area of the addition bears to the area of the total completed project.
(4) Other considerations. Other considerations shall be as follows:
(i) Where District Central Administration facilities are included in a project, the rated capacity shall be increased by 1.3 times the number of positions to be housed in the facility. The student equivalent thus derived shall be counted at the high school (10, 11, 12) cost limit.
(ii) A natatorium is to be counted as a physical education station.
