    Bill Summary

    This bill:
    (1) Removes the present law prohibition on the creation of a cyber-based public charter school and allows for the management or operation of a virtual charter school by a for-profit entity;
    (2) Revises the student population eligible to participate in a virtual school (discussed below); and
    (3) Establishes other requirements for virtual schools in this state, discussed below.

    PRESENT LAW
    Present law requires the state board of education to develop policies and guidelines for the operation of virtual education programs, including those operated by the department of education. LEAs are authorized to use BEP funds in the implementation and operation of virtual education programs. The department of education and LEAs may apply for and receive grants and accept donations to help fund virtual education programs, particularly in the startup phase.

    Under present law, participation in a virtual education program by a student is at the discretion of the LEA in which the student is enrolled or zoned to attend. However, under present law only students in K-12 who were enrolled in and attended a public school during the previous school year are eligible to participate in a virtual public education program. Students who are receiving hospital or homebound instruction are eligible to participate.

    THIS BILL
    This bill rewrites the provision described above regarding eligibility for participation in a virtual school to instead provide that all students enrolled in an LEA providing virtual education, regardless of their prior year enrollment, are eligible to participate in the virtual school program, including those receiving hospital or homebound instruction. This bill further states that any student who meets residency requirements may enroll in a virtual school.

    This bill imposes additional requirements in regard to virtual schools, as follows:

    (1) A virtual school must be evaluated annually by its sponsor based on the following criteria: the extent to which the school demonstrates increases in student achievement according to the goals of its authorizing contract and state academic standards; and the accountability and viability of the virtual school, as demonstrated by its academic, fiscal, and operational performance;
    (2) Each student enrolled in a virtual school must have access to a sequential curriculum that meets or exceeds the state's academic standards and that has an interactive program with significant online components;
    (3) Each virtual school student must be required to have 900 hours of learning opportunities per academic year, unless such student has demonstrated mastery or completion of appropriate subject areas;
    (4) Each virtual school student must be assessed regularly in language arts, math, science, and social studies;
    (5) For each family with a student enrolled, the virtual school must: provide instructional materials; ensure access to necessary technology such as a computer and printer; and ensure access to an Internet connection used for schoolwork;
    (6) Virtual schools are prohibited from providing allotments to students or families to purchase instructional programs or materials. This provision does not prohibit virtual schools from reimbursing families for costs associated with their Internet connection for use in the virtual school program;
    (7) Each teacher employed at a virtual school must be qualified to teach in this state under existing law; and
    (8) A virtual school must maintain an administrative office within the state, which will be considered its principal place of business.

    This bill specifies that:
    (1) Virtual schools are not required to comply with maximum class size requirements; and
    (2) This bill does not preclude the use of computer-based and Internet-based instruction for students in a virtual or remote setting.

    ON MAY 21, 2011, THE HOUSE ADOPTED AMENDMENTS #1 AND #2 AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 1030, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 limits authorization to create virtual schools to LEAs and authorizes LEAs to contract for services with nonprofit and for-profit entities in the operation and management of virtual schools.

    This amendment authorizes the state board of education to promulgate rules to effectuate the purposes of the Virtual Public Schools Act.

    This amendment clarifies that the hours of educational opportunity that are extended to virtual school students must be the same as the number of such hours that are provided to public school students generally, unless the virtual school student demonstrates mastery of the subject matter or completion of a course.

    This amendment authorizes any student who is eligible to enroll in a public school to enroll in a virtual school on a full-time or part-time basis. Any student who enrolls in a virtual school of an LEA other than where the student resides may be charged tuition by the LEA that established the virtual school.

    This amendment authorizes virtual schools to operate according to the authority granted by the Educational Cooperation Act.

    AMENDMENT #2 schedules this bill to be repealed June 30, 2015.

    ON MAY 21, 2011, THE SENATE SUBSTITUTED HOUSE BILL 1030 FOR SENATE BILL 874, ADOPTED AMENDMENT #4, AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 1030, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #4 replaces authorization for any student who is eligible to attend public school in Tennessee to attend a virtual school with a requirement that a student may only attend a virtual school in the LEA in which the student resides unless that LEA gives written permission for the student to attend another LEA's virtual school.

    ON MAY 21, 2011, THE HOUSE NON-CONCURRED IN SENATE AMENDMENT #4.

    ON MAY 21, 2011, THE SENATE REFUSED TO RECEDE IN THE ADOPTION OF SENATE AMENDMENT #4.

    ON MAY 21, 2011, THE HOUSE REFUSED TO RECEDE FROM ITS NON-CONCURRENCE IN SENATE AMENDMENT #4. A CONFERENCE COMMITTEE WAS APPOINTED.

    ON MAY 21, 2011, THE SENATE APPOINTED A CONFERENCE COMMITTEE.
