Best 1 of 2 Average Daily Membership (ADM)

The Best 1 of 2 at the School Level is the average daily membership (ADM) used to determine the size of the school used for principal State pay. The report shows the higher ADM of the first or second school month, for each grade level in each school.

Many LEAs use this report for their internal budgeting purposes, but note that this method of calculating Best 1 of 2 is not the same as the method used for the State allotment formulas.

Indirect Cost Rates
The US Department of Education (USDE) has given DPI authority to issue indirect cost rates for Local Education Agencies (LEAs), including the regional school, lab schools, and charter schools.
Grantees that receive their indirect cost rates from DPI use the rates to recover organization-wide administrative costs of managing federal grants, such as costs related to accounting, budgeting, purchasing, auditing, and payroll processing.
