3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    Since every county board except one has more professional educators employed than allowed for funding under the Public School Support Program, and the funding limits are not being increased through this proposal, the cost of employing the additional nurses would have to be borne by the county boards. The total estimated cost to the various county boards under this proposal is $1,414,081. See the attached schedule for an explanation of the calculations.
