HB663 by King, Ken (Relating to a continuing review and revision of the essential knowledge and skills of the public school foundation curriculum and proclamations for the production of instructional materials.), As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
It is assumed that the provisions of the bill relating to the essential knowledge and skills of the school foundation curriculum and instructional materials proclamations could be absorbed using existing resources.
Local Government Impact
Under the bill, the SBOE could only issue proclamations for instructional materials in which the total cost did not exceed 75 percent of the amount used to fund the technology and instructional materials allotment in a biennium. The SBOE would also have to consider the cost of all instructional materials and technology requirements for the upcoming biennium when determining the disbursement of money to the ASF and disbursement from the ASF used to fund the technology and instructional materials allotment. Based on these provisions, school districts could choose to allocate their technology and instructional materials allotment differently as a result of the bill
