2013 House Bill 4815: Establish procedures for dissolving fiscally failed school district (Senate Roll Call 319)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 20 to 18 in the Senate on June 19, 2013, to revise school aid distribution provisions in the state school aid act to reflect the proposal in House Bill 4814 to establish procedures for dissolving a fiscally failed school district and attaching its territory to nearby districts, with its per-pupil state funding going to those districts. The bill appropriates $2.7 million to compensate the receiving districts for money diverted to pay the dissolved district's debt, and another $2.2 million as a "bonus" for taking the failed district's students, with this funding bump to continue for four years.
