DIGEST OF HB 1189 (Updated March 10, 2012 12:38 am - DI 51)

School finance. Requires an accredited nonpublic school to provide sufficient verbal information to permit a requesting school to which a child transfers to make an appropriate placement decision when the parent of the child is in breach of a contract that conditions release of student records on the payment of outstanding tuition and other fees. Requires the state board of education to conduct a second count of students enrolled in school corporations and charter schools in February of each school year. Expires the school funding formula on July 1, 2013. Transfers the appropriation and funding for charter school start-up grants to the appropriation for state tuition support. Increases the amount of the charter school start-up grant for charter schools that begin operation in calendar year 2012 and provides that the grant is to be paid in six installments with one installment in each of the last six months of calendar year 2012. Specifies that the amount distributed as special grants to school corporations to reflect the savings resulting from the education of students under a choice scholarship rather than in a school corporation are limited only by the state fiscal year appropriation and not the calendar year cap that limits the amount of state tuition support payable in a calendar year.
