ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has announced initiatives to support charter schools, including a new funding proposal.           

Hogan announced the Public Charter School Facility Fund Act of 2019 on Wednesday. It would provide $1,600 in per-pupil funding for each public charter school student. Maryland has about 23,000 charter school students, so that would add up to about $36.8 million, if passed in its entirety.           

It would be distributed through the Maryland State Department of Education.           

The Republican governor's budget proposal includes $2.6 million specifically for construction projects at charter schools. It also includes $1.2 million from the Healthy School Facility Fund to fix heating and air conditioning issues and other maintenance improvements.           

A charter school is one that receives government funding but operates independently of the established state school system.

    On Thursday, OC Air Show pilots and their planes flew into the Wallops Flight Facility to begin practicing for the weekend events. 

    On Saturday and Sunday the beaches of Ocean City will be filled with people looking up at the planes overhead.

    The 12th annual event is expected to bring in thousands of people, so Dirato recommends getting to the 17th street area as early as possible to get a good spot.
