Docket (ITL)

DNHPE Comment: This bill appears to be downshifting.  Here is what the New Hampshire School Boards Association says about the bill:

HB 1485, revising the amount paid to a chartered public school established by the state board of education, is scheduled for a public hearing next Thursday, January 19, at 10:00 am before the House Education Committee. Reversing the practice adopted in statute since 2006, the bill calls for a charter school pupil's resident district to pay adequacy funds directly to charter schools. A "phase-in" process is proposed, with 10% paid by the district to charter schools for FY 2013, with the percent increasing by 10% annually until reaching 70%. The bill removes the state's obligation to pay adequacy funds for charter school students, shifting the financial burden to local districts.

This bill reflects a position specifically opposed by a NHSBA Resolution adopted by the NHSBA Delegate Assembly.
