HB-7201

AN ACT APPLYING THE SHEFF DEFINITION OF REDUCED-ISOLATION SETTING TO ALL INTERDISTRICT MAGNET SCHOOLS IN THE STATE.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: See Below

Municipal Impact: See Below

Explanation

The bill applies the Sheff magnet school diversity standards to all non-Sheff magnet schools. For those municipalities and Regional Education Service Centers which operate magnet schools that meet the Sheff diversity standards and not the current standards, the bill averts a potential revenue loss of magnet school grant money. The bill is not expected to have a fiscal impact to the State Department of Education given its current magnet school funding practices.

The Out Years

There is no fiscal impact in the out years.
