3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    The purpose of this bill is to increase the ratio of required school nurses from 1 in 1,500 students in K-7 net enrollment to 1 in 1,500 students in K-12 net enrollment and to eliminate the option of contracting with a public health department for nursing services.
    The estimated cost to the State through the Public School Support Program is zero for FY 2009-10 since the number of personnel allowed is not being increased. In addition, since all county boards of education currently employ the number of school nurses that would be required under this proposal, the estimated cost to the various county boards of education for the 2009-10 year is also $0.
