72-5148. Same; transportation weighting. (a) (1) The transportation weighting of each school district shall be determined by the state board as follows:

(A) Divide the BASE aid amount for the current school year by the BASE aid amount for school year 2018-2019*;

(B) multiply the number of transported students by the per capita allowance that corresponds to the density figure for the school district as determined in subsection (a)(2);

(C) multiply the product obtained under subsection (a)(1)(B) by 1.00;

(D) multiply the product obtained under subsection (a)(1)(C) by the quotient obtained under subsection (a)(1)(A);

(E) divide the product obtained under subsection (a)(1)(D) by the current year BASE amount. The result is the transportation weighting of the school district.
