Charter funding bill signed by governor

Governor LePage has signed the charter school funding law that allows the state to fund charter schools directly, eliminating the requirement for school districts to write what amounted to tuition checks for charter students.

L.D. 131, sponsored by Rep. Brian Hubbell, D-Bar Harbor, and co-sponsored by Sen. Brian Langley, R-Hancock, was passed as an emergency measure so it will go into effect for the next school year. Districts have been eager for its passage since they currently are passing budgets for next year and needed to know whether to include charter tuition.
