and each hour of independent study time completed toward a credit or graduation standards
necessary for graduation. Average daily membership for a pupil shall equal the number of
hours of teacher contact time and independent study time divided by 1,020.

(iv) For a state-approved alternative program having an independent study component,
the commissioner shall require a description of the courses in the program, the kinds of

EARLY CHILDHOOD

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 119A.52, is amended to read:


119A.52 DISTRIBUTION OF APPROPRIATION.

(a) The commissioner of education must distribute money appropriated for that purpose
to federally designated Head Start programs to expand services and to serve additional
low-income childrendeleted text begin. Migrant and Indian reservation programs must be initially allocated
money based on the programs' share of federal funds.
deleted text endnew text begin in the following order: (1) 10.72
percent of the total Head Start appropriation shall be allocated to federally designated tribal
Head Start programs; (2) the tribal Head Start portion of the appropriation shall be allocated
to tribal Head Start programs based on the programs' share of federal funds; (3) migrant
programs must then be initially allocated funding based on the programs' share of federal
funds.
new text end The remaining money must be initially allocated to the remaining local agencies
based equally on the agencies' share of federal funds and on the proportion of eligible
children in the agencies' service area who are not currently being served. A Head Start
program must be funded at a per child rate equal to its contracted, federally funded base
level at the start of the fiscal year. For all agencies without a federal Early Head Start rate,
the state average federal cost per child for Early Head Start applies. In allocating funds
under this paragraph, the commissioner of education must assure that each Head Start
program in existence in 1993 is allocated no less funding in any fiscal year than was allocated
to that program in fiscal year 1993. Before paying money to the programs, the commissioner
must notify each program of its initial allocation and how the money must be used. Each
program must present a plan under section 119A.535. For any program that cannot utilize
its full allocation at the beginning of the fiscal year, the commissioner must reduce the
allocation proportionately. Money available after the initial allocations are reduced must
be redistributed to eligible programs.

(b) The commissioner must develop procedures to make payments to programs based
upon the number of children reported to be enrolled during the required time period of
program operations. Enrollment is defined by federal Head Start regulations. The procedures
must include a reporting schedule, corrective action plan requirements, and financial
consequences to be imposed on programs that do not meet full enrollment after the period
of corrective action. Programs reporting chronic underenrollment, as defined by the
commissioner, will have their subsequent program year allocation reduced proportionately.
Funds made available by prorating payments and allocations to programs with reported
underenrollment will be made available to the extent funds exist to fully enrolled Head Start
programs through a form and manner prescribed by the department.

(c) Programs with approved innovative initiatives that target services to high-risk
populations, including homeless families and families living in homeless shelters and
transitional housing, are exempt from the procedures in paragraph (b). This exemption does
not apply to entire programs. The exemption applies only to approved innovative initiatives
that target services to high-risk populations, including homeless families and families living
in homeless shelters, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 124D.151, subdivision 6, is amended to read:

district or charter school must not exceed 60 percent of the kindergarten pupil units for that
school district or charter school under section 126C.05, subdivision 1, paragraph (e).

(b) In reviewing applications under subdivision 5, the commissioner must limit the total
number of participants in the voluntary prekindergarten and school readiness plus programs

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 124D.165, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Administration.

(a) The commissioner shall establish application timelines
and determine the schedule for awarding scholarships that meets operational needs of eligible
families and programs. The commissioner must give highest priority to applications from
children who:

(1) have a parent under age 21 who is pursuing a high school diploma or a course of
study for a high school equivalency test;

(2) are in foster care or otherwise in need of protection or services; or

(3) have experienced homelessness in the last 24 months, as defined under the federal
McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, United States Code, title 42, section 11434a.

The commissioner may prioritize applications on additional factors including family
income, geographic location, and whether the child's family is on a waiting list for a publicly
funded program providing early education or child care services.

(b) The commissioner shall establish a target for the average scholarship amount per
child based on the results of the rate survey conducted under section 119B.02.

(c) A four-star rated program that has children eligible for a scholarship enrolled in or
on a waiting list for a program beginning in July, August, or September may notify the
commissioner, in the form and manner prescribed by the commissioner, each year of the
program's desire to enhance program services or to serve more children than current funding
provides. The commissioner may designate a predetermined number of scholarship slots
for that program and notify the program of that number. For fiscal year 2018 and later, the
statewide amount of funding directly designated by the commissioner must not exceed the
funding directly designated for fiscal year 2017. Beginning July 1, 2016, a school district
or Head Start program qualifying under this paragraph may use its established registration
process to enroll scholarship recipients and may verify a scholarship recipient's family
income in the same manner as for other program participants.

(d) A scholarship is awarded for a 12-month period. If the scholarship recipient has not
been accepted and subsequently enrolled in a rated program within deleted text begintendeleted text endnew text begin threenew text end months of the
awarding of the scholarship, the scholarship cancels and the recipient must reapply in order
to be eligible for another scholarship.new text begin If a family is unable to enroll in an eligible program
within three months, they may request an extension based on an established set of criteria
that would be developed under the commissioner's authority.
new text end A child may not be awarded
more than one scholarship in a 12-month period.

(e) A child who receives a scholarship who has not completed development screening
under sections 121A.16 to 121A.19 must complete that screening within 90 days of first
attending an eligible program or within 90 days after the child's third birthday if awarded
a scholarship under the age of three.

(f) For fiscal year 2017 and later, a school district or Head Start program enrolling
scholarship recipients under paragraph (c) may apply to the commissioner, in the form and
manner prescribed by the commissioner, for direct payment of state aid. Upon receipt of
the application, the commissioner must pay each program directly for each approved
scholarship recipient enrolled under paragraph (c) according to the metered payment system
or another schedule established by the commissioner.
