Charter School And District Student Revenue True Up

Concerning reimbursement of student revenue for students who move between a charter school and a non-charter school within the same budget year.
Session:
2017 Regular Session

The bill requires a charter school to reimburse the chartering school district or another school district, whichever is applicable, for excess student revenue attributable to a student who was enrolled in the charter school on the pupil enrollment count day and who subsequently enrolled in a non-charter school of the chartering school district or of another school district in the same budget year.

The bill defines student revenue. Excess student revenue is the amount of student revenue proportionate to the time the student remained in the school before changing schools.

To determine the amount of the reimbursement, the bill requires the chartering school district to prepare an accounting for each charter school of the school district at the end of the budget year. The accounting identifies students who transferred between a charter school and a non-charter school of the school district after the pupil enrollment count day, and students who transferred from a charter school to a non-charter school of a different school district after the pupil enrollment count day.

Based on the accounting, the bill requires each charter school of the school district to reimburse the chartering school district for excess student revenue for students who transferred from the charter school to a non-charter school in the chartering school district in the same budget year. The amount of the charter school's reimbursement to the chartering school district is reduced by the total amount of excess student revenue attributable to students who started in a non-charter school of the school district and transferred to the charter school in the same budget year; except that the chartering school district is not required to reimburse the charter school if the calculation results in a negative number.

Further, each charter school of the school district is required to reimburse the chartering school district for excess student revenue for a student who transferred from the charter school to a non-charter school of a different school district in the same budget year. The chartering school district shall pay the excess student revenue received from the charter school to the school district in which the student subsequently enrolled.
