DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Public school transfers. Establishes a public school transfer program that allows the parent of a student to request a transfer for the student to enroll in: (1) a different public school in the student's base school corporation; or (2) a public school in a different school corporation. Provides an allocation of public funds for transfer students between the base school corporation and the receiving school corporation, and provides that a transferring student's parent is responsible for transportation and any additional costs. Allows school corporations to enter into an interlocal agreement under which students whose legal settlement is in one school corporation may attend school in the other school corporation. Allows a student who has legal settlement in one school corporation and whose parent owns property for which the parent pays property tax in another school corporation to attend school in the latter school corporation without transfer tuition being charged. Requires a school corporation to provide notice to parents concerning the publication of the school corporation's annual performance report and concerning the right of students to transfer out of schools that fail to perform adequately.
