Districts wishing to be involved in multiple studies will be funded as follows. The first study will receive full funding as specified above. Additional studies will be funded as specified above, but the duplicate district(s) will not be included in the calculations for number of districts or combined enrollment. If only one "new" district is included in the additional study, it will be funded at $500 plus $1,000 - $3,000 based on the enrollment of additional district involved.

Updates of past feasibility studies originally completed in the past three fiscal years (FY 2014, FY 2013, or FY2012) will be funded at ½ the rate of a new study. Updates of past feasibility studies originally completed prior to the past three fiscal years will be funded as a new study.
