RS31160 / S1306
This bill codifies and explicitly provides legislative support and funding for an existing education practice in the
Idaho public school system for grades kindergarten through 8th grade. A school district may assign a teacher
to work with parents in a parents-as-teacher model where instruction is provided largely in the home by the
parents. The school district has accountability measures such as requirements to take the state tests. The parents
have access to funds to pay for eligible expenses. The funds are generated from the current funding formula.
One of the main goals of this bill is to avoid creeping regulation that may stifle innovation.
There is no fiscal impact. The funding for the parents-as-teacher model is generated from the current funding
