    Bill Summary

    This bill authorizes cities that do not operate city school systems to sponsor charter schools and would allow any student to attend the public charter school who resides within a city which is the sponsor of the public charter school and such city's urban growth boundaries. The city's urban growth boundaries would be those boundaries established as of the effective date of this bill.

    This bill requires a charter school for which a city is the sponsor to enroll an eligible pupil residing within the city or its urban growth boundaries who submits a timely application unless the number of applications exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level or building. If applications exceed such capacity of the public charter school for which a city is the sponsor, then first preference in enrollment would be given to the pupils in attendance at the charter school in the previous school year. Second preference would be given to siblings of pupils in attendance at the charter school in the previous school year. All other students would be accorded third preference. If at any time in the process of acceptance of students, the number of students in a group of preference whose applications have not been acted upon exceeds the remaining capacity of the program, class, grade level or building of the charter school to which the students seek admittance, then the charter school must conduct a lottery to determine the students to be admitted.

    ON MAY 21, 2011, THE HOUSE ADOPTED AMENDMENTS #1 AND #2 AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 1618, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 rewrites this bill and authorizes an LEA to be the sponsor of a public charter school. If an LEA seeks to sponsor a charter school, then the state board of education will serve as the chartering authority. The decision of the state board to approve or deny the charter application would be final and would not be subject to appeal.

    AMENDMENT #2 removes the provision of House Amendment #1 stating that the decision of the state board to approve or deny the charter application would be final and would not be subject to appeal.
