In determining weighted enrollment under section 257.6, if the board of directors of a school district has approved a contract for sharing under section 442.39, subsection 2 or 4, Code 1991, or section 257.11 and the school district has initiated an action prior to November 30, 1990, to bring about a reorganization, the reorganized school district shall include, for a period of six years following the effective date of the reorganization, additional pupils added by the application of the supplementary weighting plan, equal to the pupils added by the application of the supplementary weighting plan in the year preceding the reorganization. For the purposes of this paragraph, the weighted enrollment for the period of six years following the effective date of reorganization shall include the supplementary weighting in the base year used for determining the combined district cost for the first year of the reorganization. However, the weighting shall be reduced by the supplementary weighting added for a pupil whose residency is not within the reorganized district. For purposes of this paragraph, a reorganized district is one in which the reorganization was approved in an election pursuant to sections 275.18 and 275.20 and takes effect on or after July 1, 1991, and on or before July 1, 1993. Each district which initiated, by a vote of the board of directors or jointly by the affected boards, action to bring about a reorganization or dissolution by November 30, 1990, shall certify the date and the nature of the action taken to the department of education by September 1, 1991.
A reorganized school district in which eligible pupils were added under section 442.39A, Code 1991, shall continue to have pupils added, subject to the changes in weighting made under section 257.11, until the expiration of the period provided in this paragraph. For the purposes of this paragraph, the weighted enrollment continues for a period of six years following the effective date of reorganization and shall include the supplementary weighting in the base year used for determining the combined district cost for the first year of the reorganization.
