House Bill 749 – Idaho Digital Learning Academy, Appropriations FY25

House Bill 749 – Idaho Digital Learning Academy, Appropriations FY25

Niklas Kleinworth
March 26, 2024

The Idaho Spending Index serves to provide a fiscally conservative perspective on state budgeting while providing an unbiased measurement of how Idaho lawmakers apply these values to their voting behavior on appropriations bills. Each bill is analyzed within the context of the metrics below. They receive one (+1) point for each metric that is satisfied by freedom-focused policymaking and lose one (-1) point for each instance in which the inverse is true. The sum of these points composes the score for the bill.

Bill Description: House Bill 749 appropriates $21,362,400 to the Idaho Digital Learning Academy for fiscal year 2025.

Is the maintenance budget inappropriate for the needs of the state, the size of the agency, or the inflationary environment of the economy? Conversely, is the maintenance budget appropriate given the needs of the state and economic pressures?

This is the first year that Idaho Digital Learning Academy is a stand-alone division within the Public Schools budget. This split is part of the effect of House Bill 452, which has been signed by the governor and will become law. 

The Idaho Digital Learning Academy has a base appropriation of $19,719,900. There is one line item in this budget. It would provide an increase of $1,642,500 to the agency. This amount is added in accordance with the revised funding formula. The total fiscal year 2025 appropriation is in perfect agreement with the values provided in the statement of purpose for House Bill 452.
