2012 House Bill 5754: Authorize charter boarding school for low income students
  1. Introduced by Rep. John Olumba (D) on June 14, 2012, to allow charter schools to operate residential boarding schools for “at-risk” youth (meaning ones whose low family income makes them eligible for free or reduced price federal school lunch programs). Money for this would come out of the state welfare budget rather than the school aid budget.
    • Referred to the House Education Committee on June 14, 2012.
