For each fiscal year for which funds are allocated to states, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will allocate funds as follows:
  • Each eligible local educational agency (LEA) will be awarded first the base payment amount it would have received for fiscal year 1999 if the TEA had distributed 75% of its grant for that year according to what was then in effect; and
  • After making base payment allocations, the TEA will allocate:
    • 85% of any remaining funds to those LEAs on the basis of the relative numbers of children enrolled in public and private elementary schools and secondary schools within the LEA's jurisdiction; and
    • 15% of those remaining funds to those LEAs in accordance with their relative numbers of children living in poverty, as determined by the TEA.
