The state superintendent shall make the payments under s. 118.60(4) and (4m), Stats., to schools participating in the choice program. The state superintendent may withhold payment from a school under s. 118.60(4) and (4m), Stats., if the school violates this chapter or s. 118.60, Stats. The state superintendent shall make the payments as follows:

(1) SEPTEMBER PAYMENT. The state superintendent shall calculate the September payment as the full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils multiplied by the per pupil payment amount determined under s. 118.60(4), Stats., multiplied by 25 percent. The full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils at the school shall be based on the report filed under s. PI 48.06(7). The state superintendent may not make a September payment to a school that has ceased instruction prior to the payment date.

(2) NOVEMBER PAYMENT. The department shall calculate the November payment as the full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils multiplied by the per pupil payment amount determined under s. 118.60(4), Stats., multiplied by 50 percent less the September payment received for the pupil. The full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils shall be based on the choice program pupils reported in the school's pupil count report for the third Friday in September required under s. PI 48.06(8) unless a pupil is determined ineligible by the department. The November payment shall include any payments due to the school for summer school instruction of choice program pupils in the immediately preceding summer as indicated in the report filed under s. 118.60(4) (a), Stats., unless otherwise determined ineligible by the department. The department may not make a November payment to a school that has ceased instruction prior to the payment date.

(3) FEBRUARY PAYMENT. The department shall calculate the February payment as the full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils multiplied by the per pupil payment amount determined under s. 118.60(4), Stats., multiplied by 25 percent. The full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils shall be based on the choice program pupils reported in the school's pupil count report for the second Friday in January under s. PI 48.06(8) unless a pupil is determined ineligible by the department. The department may not make a February payment to a school that has ceased instruction prior to the payment date.

(4) MAY PAYMENT. The department shall calculate the May payment as the full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils multiplied by the per pupil payment amount determined under s. 118.60(4), Stats., multiplied by 25 percent. The full-time equivalent for the choice program pupils shall be based on the choice program pupils reported in the school's pupil count report for the second Friday in January under s. PI 48.06(8) unless a pupil is determined ineligible by the department. The department may not make a May payment to a school that has ceased instruction prior to the end of its scheduled school term unless the school obtained prior written approval from the department to end the school term early.

(5) AMOUNT DUE TO DEPARTMENT. A school shall refund an amount due to the department under this chapter or s. 118.60, Stats., as follows:

(a) If the school is currently eligible to receive choice program payments, the department shall reduce the payments made under s. 118.60(4) and (4m), Stats., by the amount owed. If reducing a payment made under s. 118.60(4) and (4m), Stats., is insufficient to pay the amount owed, the school shall pay the remaining amount within 60 days of the date of the notice to the school of the amount due.

(b) If the school is not currently eligible to receive choice program payments, the school shall refund the department within 60 days of the date of the notice to the school of the amount due.
