Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill eliminates the requirement that the Department of Public Instruction
award grants for alternative education programs and eliminates DPI's rules related
to the administration of these grants. Under current law, DPI must award grants
to school districts for alternative education programs. An alternative education
program is an instructional program, approved by a school board, that includes
alternative or adaptive school structures and teaching techniques and that is
incorporated into regularly scheduled curricular programs or offered in place of
regularly scheduled curriculum programs.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
