Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
The Biennial Budget Act, 2011 Wisconsin Act 32 (the act), created a parental
choice program for eligible school districts (program). Under the program, a pupil
who resides in an eligible school district may attend a participating private school
if, among other requirements, the pupil is a member of a family that has a total
family income that does not exceed 300 percent of the poverty level. The act defined
an eligible school district as a school district located in whole or in part in a city of
the second class that is eligible to receive state aid as a high poverty school district
and satisfies certain requirements related to equalized value per member and shared
cost per member.
This bill provides that no school district that has not already qualified as an
eligible school district may qualify as an eligible school district after the effective
date of this bill.
