Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation amends the laws relating to the withdrawal of a school administrative unit from an education service center to allow for either the withdrawing school administrative unit or the remaining school administrative units in an education service center to request a neutral arbitrator if the parties are unable to agree on a withdrawal agreement after a certain period of time.  Although there is no fiscal impact to the State, this bill may increase costs to the members of the education service center for arbitration and alternate dispute resolution services.
