(1) by school, for
(A) kindergarten through grade six;
(B) grades 7 - 12; and
(C) students requiring intensive services; and
(2) by district, for correspondence study programs.
(b) For a district to be eligible for intensive services funding for a student under AS 14.17.420 (a)(2), the student must be enrolled and receiving intensive services, as defined in 4 AAC 52.990, on the last day of the student count period under AS 14.17.600 .

A district's ADM report must be submitted to the department within two weeks after the end of the student count period under AS 14.17.600 . If the district's ADM report is not received on or before November 16, the department will immediately withhold all payments of state aid to the district until the report is received. Projected and initial student counts for public school funding calculations will be based on the student data submitted in the paper format. Final public school funding calculations will be based on student count data submitted in electronic format as adjusted under (e) of this section.
(d) No adjustments will be made to increase a district's student count based on data that the district failed to include in the reports submitted under (c) of this section.
(e) The department will prepare and mail to each district a report based on the student data submitted in electronic format. The report will indicate supplemental information or data that the district must correct, including duplicate students between districts, missing birth dates, out of state students, or other required data, to allow the department to determine public school funding eligibility. Within 30 days after the date of the department's report, districts shall submit the required information and corrections to the department. The district student count data will be adjusted based on the corrected data submitted. If the district fails to respond timely with the required information and corrections on the listed students, the department will determine those students to be ineligible, and the student counts for the district will be adjusted.
