7035-0002 for adult education is $38,295,000, which is a $195K increase over the House, but it's an earmark
the $73,856,506 for regional transportation reimbursement (7035-0006) is the same as the House
7035-0007 is vocational transportation; the House didn't fund; the Senate has $250K, same as the Gov.
7035-0008 for McKinney-Vento reimbursement, just over $9M, same as the Gov, which DESE estimated at 37%
AP math and science, same $2.8M

lunch line (7053-1909) is $10K less than both House and Gov (is this a mistake?)
breakfast line (7053-1925) is same $4.5M as Gov (House has an earmark)
Chapter 70: $5,176,002,652

That's $50M more than the House
(fingers crossed we get spreadsheets again)
the special education circuit breaker (7061-0012)
$345,054,803
Senate Ways and Means says this is full funding.
(numbers have been coming in high, though, so be cautious)
There is no low income pothole account (not surprising, as the Senate is simply boosting the foundation budget WHICH IS A BETTER IDEA)
Office of accountability is funded as in the House and Gov
No military mitigation
CHARTER MITIGATION (7061-9010)
$100M (down from House $113M); adopts 100/60/40 and facilities increase.

HOWEVER:

It does NOT adopt the Gov/House "only enrollment higher than prior 5 year thing" (aka: all increases are in)
data analysis is the same

MCAS also the same $32M (so we apparently are not going to have that battle this year)
targeted intervention ((7061-9408) is up a bit from the House ($130K)
extended learning time same $13,984,884 as the House
Recovery high schools (7061-9607) down $100K from House (to $2.5M)
Safe and supportive schools (7061-9612) up the rather odd $108,128 from the House (which had it at $400K)
YouthBuild (7061-9626) same $2.4M
Mass Mentoring (7061-9634) down $250K from House (which had it at $1M)
student wellness grant
regionalization bonus
both not included
$400K for sexual abuse prevention (7061-9812) (House had it at $500K)
AHA!
7061-9813 is BACK: rural school aid of $1.5M
and summer learning is in at $500K, as in the House

And those are the Senate Ways and Means #MAEdu K-12 lines
