Page 99, after line 19, insert:
"f. For any full-time virtual public school program, the state's share of funding for the students enrolled shall be based on the composite index of the enrolling student's locality of residence, consistent with the state share of funding that would have been provided had the student enrolled in their resident school division.".

(This amendment specifies that state funding for students enrolled in full-time virtual school programs is based on the composite index of the student's locality of residence. It prevents operators of full-time virtual schools to receive substantially more per student than the statewide average per pupil support simply by contracting with a school division that has a low composite index.)
