|Statement of Purpose|
This appropriation for the Superintendent of Public Instruction/State Department of Education is a trailer bill to SB 1331.
This appropriation authorizes an additional 2.0 FTP and $190,100 in dedicated funds to the Superintendent of Public Instruction/State Department of Education. This additional funding will enable the department to comply with the provisions of SB 1331, which direct the department to improve its financial oversight of state funding for school district pupil transportation. The dedicated fund source for this appropriation will be audit fees collected from school districts, pursuant to Section 3 of the bill. School districts will be able to include the cost of such fees as part of their pupil transportation reimbursement claim, meaning the state will ultimately pay 85% of these costs. With the average audit finding resulting in $16,000 in savings to the state, it is expected that these positions will more than pay for the state’s 85% share of their costs.
