|Subject:||Charter School Reform – Application and Charter Process|
|Please join me by cosponsoring legislation that I plan to introduce in the near future regarding improving the chartering process for charter schools, regional charter schools, and cyber charter schools (“charter school entities”).
This legislation will improve the chartering process through establishment of the following:
The reforms embodied in my legislation are part of a legislative package of four bills critical to improving and strengthening our Charter School Law, which was groundbreaking upon its enactment in 1997 but has become outdated over time. We must make these reforms now in order to maintain charter, regional charter and cyber charter schools as a strong, quality school choice option for the Commonwealth’s children and families.
Introduced as HB357
