Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: December 21, 2016 04:08 PM
From: Senator Judith L. Schwank
To: All Senate members
Subject: Cyber Charter
I will shortly reintroduce SB 335 from the 2013-2014 session, relieving school districts that offer their own cyber education programs from financial responsibility for resident students enrolled in a cyber-charter school.
Currently, school districts are responsible for the tuition of resident students attending cyber charter schools. This is set at the amount of the district's net per-student share of state basic education funding.
Under my legislation, a district that offers a cyber program equal in scope and content to the cyber charter school will not be responsible for the tuition costs. Tuition costs will be treated in cyber situations the same as in attendance in non-district brick-and-mortar schools, with the family being responsible for them.

Introduced as SB551
