STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS27635 / H0512
Idaho public charter schools accept all students. Some public charter schools have programs designed to serve
English language learners, students who are homeless or in foster care, students with disabilities, economically
disadvantaged students or at-risk students. To help those students access these education programs, this
legislation allows public charter schools to give additional weight in their student enrollment lottery to those
groups of students, if they choose.
This bill will have no fiscal impact on the general fund because public charter schools with student wait lists
already conduct lotteries.
DISCLAIMER: This statement of purpose and fiscal note are a mere attachment to this bill and prepared by a proponent
of the bill. It is neither intended as an expression of legislative intent nor intended for any use outside of the legislative
process, including judicial review (Joint Rule 18).
