Law (general)
English term or phrase: education hold harmless amount
It is part of a proposal for amendment and it goes:
'In implementing this section, the amount appropriated and set in the General Appropriations Act in the 2010-2011 fiscal year shall not be less than the amount appropriated and set in the 2008-2009 fiscal year for the funding of public schools under the Florida Education Finance Program, as increased by the average historical growth for such amounts during state fiscal years 2006-2007 and 2007-2008, which appropriated and set amount shall be referred to as the “education hold harmless amount.”'
Thank you for your help!

Abajo encontrarás numerosas referencias que sin embargo no dan pistas claras con respecto a la traducción. Yo en principio, dejaría (ya que parece ser un apelativo tipo "nombre propio" del sistema) en inglés el término : monto educacional "hold harmless" y entre paréntesis pondría la traducción que he propuesto arriba.

Chapter 41, Education Code, requires the Commissioner of Education, not later than July 15 each year, to notify a district if the Commissioner finds that, based on estimated values prior to adoption of a local tax rate and budget, the district’s taxable value of property per student in weighted average daily attendance (WADA) exceeds the equalized wealth level, also known as the recapture level. A district that exceeds the recapture level must hold a one-time authorizing election on methods of distribution of recapture funds, such as purchasing attendance credits, or
else face an action such as detachment of territory.
Under provisions of HB 1 enacted in the 3rd Called Special Session by the 79th Legislature, a district that is notified of Chapter 41 status and that is entitled to state revenue under the new ******“hold harmless” law providing for compression of tax rates can receive that state revenue through an adjustment against recapture.

d) Eligibility for hold-harmless protec-
tion. (1) An LEA must meet the eligi-
bility requirements for a basic grant,
targeted grant, or education finance in-
centive grant under §200.71 in order for
the applicable hold-harmless provision
to apply.
(2) An LEA not meeting the eligi-
bility requirements for a concentration
grant under §200.71 must be paid its
hold-harmless amount for four con-
secutive years.

A district's state aid calculation will be: The district's weighted average daily attendance multiplied by the state adequacy target. This figure may be adjusted upward by the dollar value modifier. From this total, the district's local effort will be subtracted, and if this number is above zero, this number is the district's state aid payment. If the number is below zero, then the district will receive no less revenue on a per weighted daily attendance basis than the district received in the 2005-2006 school year. This "hold harmless" calculation is adjusted to reflect usage of weighed average daily attendance. The dollar value modifier is also applied to the hold-harmless payment, and such application is phased in over a three-year period.

For very small school districts, the ****hold harmless calculation***** will be based on the actual amount of state revenue received by the district in the 2004-2005 or 2005-2006 school year, whichever is greater. This amount is not a per-student figure. The small school district "hold harmless" calculation also is adjusted to reflect usage of weighed average daily attendance, and the dollar value modifier is applied to this hold-harmless payment. The dollar value modifier application is phased in over a three year period.

Eliminates the total program provision ***holding school districts harmless**** for the 1995-96 budget year. In all districts that were ***held harmless****, includes the 1994-95 hold harmless dollar amount as part of the amount of additional property tax revenue for fiscal year 1995-96 and fiscal years thereafter in excess of the district's total program. Reduces the 1995-96 fiscal year school finance levy by the number of mills required to generate that dollar amount and reduces it before a maximum mill levy is imposed. If a hold harmless district had a levy greater than 40.080 mills for the 1994-95 fiscal year and the mills greater than 40.080 mills generated more revenue in the 1994-95 fiscal year than the hold harmless amount, considers the mill levy greater than the maximum levy as additional property tax revenue. Sets a maximum mill levy of 41.75 mills.

Determine the second factor that will be used to adjust the district’s M&O revenue per WADA to reflect the adjustment to the hold harmless tax base by dividing the district’s adopted M&O tax rate from Line 6 by $1.50. This adjustment only applies to ****“hold harmless” districts – districts that are allowed to retain more than $295,000 in wealth per student in order to maintain their 1992-93 level of revenue per weighted student.***** If the district is not a “hold harmless” district, enter 1.00 on Line 12.
