CCIS has received some information from the CDE on general guidelines to follow in calculating the grade span ratios.
Districts will need to calculate an independent study ratio by grade span and a ratio by grade span for all other educational programs operated by the district. ADA by grade span for independent study and ADA for all other educational programs by grade span should be easily known. LEAs will need to track assigned teachers and the grade spans they serve. As far as the FTE portion of the calculation is concerned, to the extent the same teacher serves more than one grade span, the FTE for that teacher will have to be reasonably prorated among the applicable grade spans.
