2012 House Bill 5754

Authorize charter boarding school for low income students

Introduced in the House

June 14, 2012

Introduced by Rep. John Olumba (D-5)

To allow charter schools to operate residential boarding schools for “at-risk” youth (meaning ones whose low family income makes them eligible for free or reduced price federal school lunch programs). Money for this would come out of the state welfare budget rather than the school aid budget.

Referred to the Committee on Education
