SB 645: Charter Schools (2011)


Senate Bill 645 increases oversight and accountability for charter schools.  The bill would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to identify the charter schools that have not met the renewal criteria, as defined by the bill, and notify the charter school and its authorizer. The bill would prohibit the renewal of a charter school that does not meet the criteria.  A charter school that does not meet the renewal criteria may appeal to the State Board of Education.
