RS31758 / H0760
This trailer bill to HB 521 makes the following changes:
1) It ensures that the executive officer of the state board is confirmed by the Senate;
2) It delays the implementation of the minimum days requirement for schools to 2025 to ensure legislative
oversight while providing the state board flexibility to phase in hours or days requirements;
3) It ensures any misused dollars by a local school district are recaptured to the schools facilities fund and
distributed to rural schools;
4) It amends to one-time distributions from the school district facilities fund;
5) It restores public charter school facility funds to what they were prior to unanticipated reductions from
funding formulas impacted by the passage of HB 292 in 2023; and
6) It resolves a conflict within Section 33-5209A, Idaho Code.
This legislation will have no incremental impact on the state’s General fund or any dedicated fund or federal
fund. The legislation does not make any adjustments to portions of House Bill 521 that have a budgetary
impact, and even if public charter schools experience a high attendance rate, the anticipated cost is covered by
the moneys appropriated in the public schools budget.
