Initiative 1240 requires the State Board of Education to establish an annual application approval process and timelines for entities seeking approval to be charter school authorizers.
On February 26, the Board adopted rules on approval of school districts seeking to be authorizers of charter schools.
On March 14, the Board approved for public hearing the proposed rules on the authorizer overnight fee, the timeline for charter applications, and the use of a lottery for ensuring compliance with the allowable numbers of charter schools. The Board is soliciting public comment on these rules for public hearing at its May meeting. The school district fiscal impact statement is now available.
The Board is also responsible for producing an annual report on charter schools for the preceding year, as well as a five-year review on the charter school program.
