Bill Caption

Relating to a school district contract to partner with an open-enrollment charter school to operate a district campus and share education resources.

Fiscal Notes

Estimated Two-year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for SB 1882, Committee Report 1st House, Substituted: an impact of $0 through the biennium ending August 31, 2019.

The bill would have an estimated impact of $1.2 million in fiscal year 2020, $2.6 million in fiscal year 2021, and $4.3 million in fiscal year 2022, assuming the agency implements the program. The agency is not required to implement the legislation in the absence of an appropriation. 

Bill Analysis

SB 1882 would allow charter schools to share resources with school districts with the intent of sharing resources, teachers, and lesson strategies. This ability only is reserved only for those schools that received an unacceptable rating.

The bill would also entitle the school district that enters into such an agreement to receive, for each student in average daily attendance, the difference between: 1) the amount of funding provided under Section 12.106 of the Education Code; and 2) the amount the district would be entitled under Chapter 42 of the Education Code if the difference would result in increased funding. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

SB 1882 will allow charter schools and school districts to share resources in order to improve the charter school. The operation of charter schools are integral to the success of education in Texas. For this reason, we support this bill.
