Relating to Charter Schools.

 

 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

 


     SECTION 1.  Section 302D-28, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended by amending subsections (a) and (b) to read as follows:

     "(a)  Beginning with fiscal year 2012-2013, and each fiscal year thereafter, the non-facility general fund per-pupil funding request for charter school students shall be the same as the general fund per-pupil amount to the department in the most recently approved executive budget recommendation for the department and shall be based upon reasonable projected enrollment figures for all charter schools.  The general fund per-pupil request for each regular education and special education student shall:

     (1)  Include all general fund regular education cost categories, including comprehensive school support services, but excluding special education services, adult education, and the after-school plus program; provided that these services are provided and funded by the department; [and]

     (2)  Exclude fringe benefit costs and debt service[.]; and

     (3)  Exclude student transportation costs.

     (b)  [Fringe] Student transportation costs for charter school students and fringe benefit costs for charter school employees, regardless of the payroll system utilized by a charter school, shall be included in the department of budget and finance's annual budget request.  No student transportation costs or fringe benefit costs shall be charged directly to or deducted from the charter school per-pupil allocations.

     The legislature shall make an appropriation based upon the budget request; provided that the legislature may make additional appropriations for facility and other costs.

     The governor, pursuant to chapter 37, may impose restrictions or reductions on charter school appropriations similar to those imposed on department schools."

     SECTION 2.  Statutory material to be repealed is bracketed and stricken.  New statutory material is underscored.

     SECTION 3.  This Act shall take effect upon its approval.
