Paragraph (2) of subsection (i) of section 89 of chapter 71, as so appearing, is hereby amended by adding the following subparagraph:-
Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, no public school district’s total charter school tuition payment to commonwealth charter schools shall exceed 9 percent of the district’s net school spending unless the district receives local approval; provided, however, that this sentence shall not apply to charter schools that were approved by the board prior to January 1, 2015. For the purposes of this subparagraph “ local approval” shall mean: the approval of the school committee for each school district from which the charter school is expected to enroll students; the approval of the voters at a town meeting of each town from which the charter school is expected to enroll students, or in a city by the approval of the city council, by whatever title it may be known, and the mayor; or the approval of the voters at a general biennial state election by municipalities from which the charter school is expected to enroll students.
