Short description: 
SCH CD-CHARTER SCH FUNDING                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Charter Schools Law in the School Code.  Provides that      
   when the State Board of Education  reverses  a  local  school  board's      
   decision to deny, revoke, or not renew a charter, the State Board, not      
   the local school board, shall provide the funding necessary to pay the      
   costs  of  the charter school from a separate appropriation.  Provides      
   that the amount of State aid paid to the school district shall not  be      
   reduced because the State Board is providing the funding, and requires      
   that  days of attendance by pupils at the charter school be accredited      
   to and counted by the school district in which those pupils reside for      
   purposes of determining the average daily attendance of and State  aid      
   payable  to  that  district.  Provides that the funding, services, and      
   time of payment shall be negotiated by the  State  Board  and  charter      
   school.   Provides  that  the  amount  of funding for a charter school      
   after the first school year of operation is based on an average  daily      
   attendance  figure  for  the  charter  school instead of the number of      
   students residing in the school  district  who  are  enrolled  in  the      
   charter  school.   Provides that these changes apply beginning June 1,      
   1998.  Effective immediately.
