Additional Funding Charter School Operating Costs

Concerning distribution of additional operational funding to charter schools.
2017 Regular Session

Beginning in the 2017-18 budget year, the bill requires a school district to distribute revenue it receives from ongoing local property tax mill levies equally, on a per-student basis, to the school district charter schools. Under specified circumstances, the school district may distribute the revenue using a different calculation. The bill does not require a school district to redistribute to charter schools any amount of the mill levy revenue that it distributed in budget years before the 2017-18 budget year.

The bill directs the department of education to calculate a mill levy equalization payment for each institute charter school in the amount of the per pupil share of the mill levy overrides of an institute charter school's accounting district. The state will pay the mill levy equalization amounts, subject to annual appropriations.
