COMMITTEE

HB 108 -- SCHOOL AID CALCULATION

SPONSOR:  Scheve

COMMITTEE ACTION:  Voted "do pass" by the Committee on
Education-Elementary and Secondary by a vote of 19 to 0.

For the purpose of calculating state aid to schools, this bill
permits children of any full-time employee of a school district
who do not live in the district employing their parent to attend
school and be counted as resident pupils in that district in
certain circumstances.  Currently, only the children of teachers
can be counted as resident pupils.  When their district of
residence is not otherwise liable for their tuition, children
attending school in the district which employs their parent may
be counted as pupils in that district.

FISCAL NOTE:  No impact on state funds.

PROPONENTS:  Supporters say that this bill allows the children
of noncertificated employees to attend school where their
parents work as a matter of equity and local control. The Affton
district had been doing this and was advised that statutory
change was needed.  It has been a convenience for employees with
small children.  This practice also develops school pride. The
tax money still goes to the residence district.

Testifying for the bill were Representative Scheve; Affton 101
School District; Cooperating School Districts of Greater St.
Louis; Missouri State Teachers Association; Missouri National
Education Association; and Missouri Federation of Teachers and
School-Related Personnel

OPPONENTS:  There was no opposition voiced to the committee.
