2011 Senate Bill 618: Eliminate charter school cap (Senate Roll Call 564)

Passed 20 to 18 in the Senate on October 6, 2011, to eliminate the cap of 150 on the number of charter schools that can be chartered by universities, and allow all community colleges to authorize charters outside their regular district. The bill would also eliminate a provision mandating union collective bargaining for charter schools chartered by regular school districts; allow charters to operate the same grade levels at multiple sites; eliminate some restrictions on where charter schools may be located; require more transparency by charter schools; restrict conflict of interest relationships between charter authorizers and school managers; exempt charter schools from property tax; streamline various chartering procedures and regulations, as well as the process for revoking a failing charter school’s charter; and more.
