Bill Summary

The bill directs the general assembly to appropriate $10 million for the 2018-19 budget year to the department of education to distribute to small rural districts and institute charter schools that are located within small rural districts. The money is distributed on a per pupil basis based on the student enrollment or funded pupil count for the 2017-18 budget year. If the rural district is the authorizer for a district charter school, the rural district must distribute the full per pupil share of the amount received to the district charter school.
