The bill identifies a school district that is on performance watch as
a chronically low-performing school district.
The bill requires a chronically low-performing school district to
establish a parent choice program to create accounts for the parents of
students who reside within the school district and are enrolled in the

school district. The school district must deposit into each account an
amount equal to the per-pupil amount of the school district's state share
of total program and the per-pupil share of categorical funding for the
eligible student. The school district may deposit into each account an
amount equal to the school district's local share of total program.
A parent may withdraw money from the account for eligible
expenses related to education.
A chronically low-performing school district is required to
maintain the parent choice program until the school district achieves an
accreditation rating of accredited or higher. However, the chronically
low-performing school district is required to maintain all accounts in
existence from when the school district was chronically low-performing
until all accounts are closed.
A chronically low-performing school district must adopt certain
procedures for the parent choice program.
If a parent misuses money provided into the account twice within
a school year, the chronically low-performing school district will stop
depositing money into the account. A parent may appeal the decision.
