Adds a definition of an "adult high school". Repeals a provision that prohibits the establishment of new adult high schools. Provides that an adult high school may only be authorized by the Indiana charter school board. Requires a charter for an adult high school to contain certain requirements. Provides that, with certain exceptions, for state fiscal years beginning after June 30, 2014, an adult high school is not entitled to receive funding from the state unless the general assembly enacts an appropriation for the adult high school. Provides that an adult high school is subject to an alternative accountability system established by the state board. Provides that certain authorizers may collect a 3% administrative fee from the amount appropriated to an adult high school. (Current law provides that an authorizer may collect the administrative fee from the charter school's basic tuition support.)
