Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.
|The purpose of this bill is to authorize eight school districts to be designated as Innovation School Districts through a competitive application process to the State Board. Two school systems each may be selected from each of the four student population density categories (sparse, low medium and high). The district must develop a plan for the innovations it seeks to implement and it must be approved at the local level. If selected by the State Board, the district is authorized to seek waivers of statutes, policies, rules and interpretations over a five-year period as it progresses with implementation of its plan.|

3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
Since the bill does not require the appropriation of any state funds, there would be no additional cost to the State as a result of the passage of this bill. County boards could possibly incur some costs in implementing provisions of their individual plans, but any such costs would be incurred at their own discretion; there are no provisions contained in the bill that would require county boards to incur costs as a result of submitting or implementing their approved plans.
