News Release - Media Note on State Board's Newly Passed Charter School Rules

Jan. 13, 2012

***Media Note***
Below is a clarification on the State Board of Education’s newly passed rules for charter schools and charter school authorizers


As a part of the State Board of Education’s Jan. 11 meeting, it approved rules for charter schools and charter school authorizers. Included in those rules are guiding principles for the State Board of Education to consider in its decisions related to charter school appeals and exclusive chartering authority. In 2010, the Legislature passed House Bill 1412 which established a Charter School and Charter Authorizer Standards Review Committee to make recommendations to the state board and education committees regarding standards. As a part of its decision-making, the State Board of Education clarified that the rules it passed do not supersede its authority under the Charter Schools Act.
