Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    The purpose of this bill is to increase the number of school nurses required from a ratio of 1:1,500 students in K-7 net enrollment to 1:750 in PK-12 net enrollment.
    Since most county boards of education employ professional educators in excess of the number allowed under the Public School Support Program, this cost will be borne by the county boards.
