Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
(b)(1)(A) Except as provided in subparagraph (2), for a chartered public school authorized by the state board of education pursuant to RSA 194-B:3-a, the state shall pay tuition pursuant to RSA 198:40-a, II(a)-(c) and (e) plus an additional grant of $3,286 to all chartered public schools for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018, and [$3,411] $3,911 to all chartered public schools for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019 and each fiscal year thereafter, except for the Virtual Learning Academy Charter School, directly to the chartered public school for each pupil who is a resident of this state in attendance at such chartered public school.

This bill increases the statutory additional grant amount for per pupil payments to public charter schools from $3,411 to $3,911, effective FY 2020. Based on current enrollment estimates, this $500 per pupil increase would result in additional education trust fund expenditures of $2,046,500 in FY 2020 and $2,158,500 in FY 2021. Enrollment estimates beyond FY 2021 have not been provided, therefore this bill’s impact in FY 2022 and each year thereafter is indeterminable.
