SECTION 3.    Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017 the distribution to cities and towns of the balance of the State Lottery and Gaming Fund, as paid from the General Fund in accordance with clause (c) of the second paragraph of section 35 of chapter 10 of the General Laws, and additional funds from the General Fund and the Gaming Local Aid Fund, shall be $1,021,928,272 and shall be apportioned to the cities and towns in accordance with this section.

          Notwithstanding section 2 of chapter 70 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, except for section 12B of chapter 76 and section 89 of chapter 71 of the General Laws, for fiscal year 2017 the total amounts to be distributed and paid to each city and town from item 7061-0008 of section 2 shall be as set forth in the following lists. The specified amounts to be distributed from said item 7061-0008 of said section 2 shall be in full satisfaction of the amounts due under chapter 70 of the General Laws.

          For fiscal year 2017, the foundation budget category of "low income enrollment" for the purpose of calculating foundation enrollment shall be the number of students identified as economically disadvantaged by qualifying as a match in the Commonwealth's direct certification system through the EOHHS virtual gateway system in any of the last 4 enrollment collections dating back to the prior year under the programs, terms, and eligibility standards in effect for the Commonwealth in October 2015. Each district shall be assigned a low income decile based on its low income percentage which shall be calculated as its number of economically disadvantaged students over its total foundation enrollment. Each decile shall be assigned a low income rate, where the rate for the lowest percentage decile shall be $3,775 and each subsequent decile shall increase by $40 up to the highest percentage decile rate of $4,135. All other foundation budget categories for each district shall be calculated in the same manner as in fiscal year 2016. The target local share shall be calculated using the same methodology used in fiscal year 2016. Preliminary local contribution shall be the municipality's fiscal year 2016 minimum required local contribution, increased or decreased by the municipal revenue growth factor; provided, that if a municipality's preliminary local contribution as a percentage of its foundation budget is more than 2.5 percentage points lower than the target local share, the preliminary contribution shall be recalculated using the municipality's revenue growth factor plus 1 percentage point; and if a municipality's preliminary contribution as a percentage of its foundation budget is more than 7.5 percentage points lower than the target local share, the preliminary contribution shall be recalculated using the municipality's revenue growth factor plus 2 percentage points. Minimum required local contribution for fiscal year 2017 shall be, for any municipality with a fiscal year 2017 preliminary contribution greater than its fiscal year 2017 target contribution, the preliminary local contribution reduced by 85 per cent of the gap between the preliminary local contribution and the target local contribution. No minimum required local contribution shall be greater than 90 percent of the district's foundation budget amount. Required local contribution shall be allocated among the districts to which a municipality belongs in direct proportion to the foundation budgets for the municipality's pupils at each of those districts. For fiscal year 2017, the "foundation aid increment" shall be the difference between: (a) the positive difference between a district's foundation budget and its required district contribution; and (b) prior year aid. The "minimum aid increment" shall be equal to $55 multiplied by the district's foundation enrollment minus the foundation aid increment. Each district shall be held harmless to the aid amount calculated using the district's fiscal year 2016 percentage of low income foundation enrollment applied to the district's fiscal year 2017 total foundation enrollment multiplied by the fiscal year 2016 low income rates for elementary and secondary students adjusted for inflation.

          Chapter 70 aid for fiscal year 2017 shall be the sum of prior year aid plus the foundation aid increment, if any, plus the minimum aid increment, if any, plus additional aid resulting from the calculation of fiscal year 2016 low income aid, if any. No non-operating district shall receive chapter 70 aid in an amount greater than the district's foundation budget.

          If there is a conflict between the language of this section and the distribution listed below, the distribution below shall control.

          The department of elementary and secondary education shall not consider health care costs for retired teachers to be part of net school spending for any district in which such costs were not considered part of net school spending in fiscal year 1994, and in which such district has not accepted the provisions of section 260 of chapter 165 of the acts of 2014.

          No payments to cities, towns or counties maintaining an agricultural school under this section shall be made after November 30 of the fiscal year until the commissioner of revenue certifies acceptance of the prior fiscal year's annual financial reports submitted pursuant to section 43 of chapter 44 of the General Laws. Advance payments shall be made for some or all of periodic local reimbursement or assistance programs to any city, town, regional school district or independent agricultural and technical school that demonstrates an emergency cash shortfall, as certified by the commissioner of revenue and approved by the secretary of administration and finance, under guidelines established by the secretary.
