House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.
Modifies the proposed changes to Section 8.35 of SL 2014-100, as amended, concerning the virtual charter schools pilot program. Modifies the enrollment cap at participating schools to be no greater than 1,500 in their first year of operation with an allowable annual increase by 20% for each school (previous edition capped enrollment at 3,000 in the eighth year of the pilot). Authorizes the State Board of Education to allow a participating school to increase student enrollment to greater than 20% for any year of the school's operation if the State Board determines it to be in the State's best interest (previously, authorized the State Board to waive the 3,000-student maximum enrollment beginning in the eighth year of the school's operation). Adds a new requirement for a participating school to receive State Board approval for any enrollment increase if the school has been placed under monthly compliance monitoring by the Charter School Advisory Board due to a material change to its charter. Maintains that the changes apply beginning with the 2019-20 school year.
