Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Transportation Article of the School Code. In provisions claiming reimbursement by the State for transportation, provides that, for a State-authorized charter school, the State will pay the prorated allowable cost of transporting eligible pupils less the prior year prorated assessed valuation based on enrollment reported for the previous academic year in a State-authorized charter school proportionate to the State-authorized charter school's local school board's district enrollment for the previous academic year. Provides that a State-authorized charter school's qualifying rate shall be the same as the rate that applies to State-authorized charter school's local school board's district. Provides that if a State-authorized charter school does not have a Transportation Fund tax rate of at least .12% based upon the tax rate of its local school board's district, the State-authorized charter school shall be eligible to receive a reimbursement based on the proportion of students enrolled in the State-authorized charter school compared with the local school board's district enrollment.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Transportation Article of the School Code concerning reimbursement by the State for transportation. Provides that a State-authorized charter school shall be reimbursed by the State. Sets forth provisions concerning how much the State must pay. Provides that a charter school, other than a State-authorized charter school, that offers transportation to eligible students shall be eligible for reimbursement by the State at the same rate as its host district, unless the host district is the Chicago school district, in which case the charter school is eligible for reimbursement by the State at the rate set forth in the charter agreement. Sets forth how the charter school shall make a reimbursement claim. Provides that a charter school, other than a State-authorized charter school, that has previously received regular transportation grant funding from the State Board of Education or is in the process of receiving such funding approved in the same fiscal year as the effective date of the amendatory Act shall retain any awarded funding.
