   14  with a qualified third party to conduct a study to analyze the
   15  state’s current school district cost differential amenities
   16  index and to develop a cost-of-education index that focuses on
   17  the cost differences integral to K-12 public school district
   18  operations.
   19         (2) For purposes of the study, the cost-of-education index

   22  the control of school districts and may include, but not be
   23  limited to, costs for teacher salaries, costs for health
   24  insurance for employees, and property insurance and
   25  transportation costs per full-time equivalent student.

   27  be an out-of-state postsecondary educational institution. The

   30  President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of
   31  Representatives, and the Governor by January 1, 2011.
