Fiscal Detail and Notes
Allowing local school boards and collaboratives of local school boards to authorize public charter schools in their school administrative units after the cap on the number of public charter schools authorized by the Maine Charter School Commission is reached will not increase the total cost of public education from kindergarten to grade 12 or the State's share of that cost.  For students attending a public charter school authorized by a local school board or a collaborative of school boards, the school administrative unit in which the student resides must forward the per-pupil allocation for that student directly to the public charter school pursuant to Title 20-A, section 2413.
