The bill directs the general assembly to appropriate $10 million for the 2018-19 budget year to the department of education to distribute to small rural districts and institute charter schools that are located within small rural districts. The money is distributed on a per pupil basis based on the student enrollment or funded pupil count for the 2017-18 budget year.
