DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Multiple ADM counts. Provides that: (1) an average daily membership (ADM) count of students enrolled in a public school in grades K-12 must be taken during the school year in September and January; and (2) state tuition support must be distributed based on the latest count of students. Changes the first month that the September count affects distributions from January of the following year to October of the year in which the count is taken. Requires state tuition support distributions to be made every month rather than every 40 days. Calculates charter school startup and other advance loans based on a three month period rather than a six month period. Makes related changes in various calculations to reflect the change in counting procedure.
