HB 787 -- SCHOOL DISTRICT CLASSIFICATION AND DEFINITIONS (Barry)

The bill clarifies several definitions relating to schools,
changing references from 6-member districts to 7-member
districts.  The bill also deletes the definition of
"householder" and modifies the definitions of "elementary
school" and "high school" to permit such schools to be limited
to just one grade. Currently, schools must contain 2 or more
grades.  The bill also makes technical changes to several
definitions.

FISCAL NOTE:  No impact on state funds.

level each year, instead of taking at least two years away from
an existing school.
