Beginning in the 2020-21 budget year, the bill allows a school
district, a board of cooperative services, a charter school, or the state
charter school institute (local education provider) that operates a
pathways in technology early college high school (p-tech school) to apply
to the department of education (department) for reimbursement for the
amount of tuition and fees and the costs of books and materials incurred

in enrolling p-tech school students in postsecondary courses. The amount
of the reimbursement is based on the average of the in-state tuition for
local district colleges or community colleges, depending on the type of
institution that provides the course, and is payable only for each
successfully completed course credit hour. The state board of education
must promulgate rules to implement the reimbursements. For the 2020-21
budget year and each budget year thereafter, the general assembly is
directed to appropriate at least $2 million for the amount of the
reimbursements. As part of the annual budget preparation process, the
department will report the actual amount reimbursed and the amount
expected to be reimbursed in the current and future budget years.
