JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri House has voted to revise the way the state distributes basic aid to school districts.
Missouri's current funding formula was adopted in 2005, to be phased in gradually until the 2012-2013 school year.
But legislation approved Thursday extends the phase-in period until the 2017-2018 academic year.
House members passed the legislation on a 82-67 vote — the minimum number of affirmative votes for the bill to clear the chamber.
The legislation would also let school districts charge some parents for using the Parents as Teachers early childhood education program.
Another provision would limit the number of summer school hours funded by the state and the classes for which state money could be used.
