Charter school bill passes senate

Republicans Increase Access to Virtual Public Charter School
By Oregon Senate Republican Office,

Deputy Leader Dick Anderson (R-Lincoln City) carried House Bill 3204 A on the Senate floor, a measure that: (1) Reduces the amount of time a school district can approve or deny an application for a student to attend a virtual charter school from 14 days to 5 days; (2) Reduces the amount of time allowed for a parent or guardian to appeal the decision from 30 days to 14 days; (3) Ensures accuracy of the district’s determination to deny an application based on the 3% cap by requiring current updating of student population numbers with the state. It passed unanimously.

“Good education that works for every student is fundamental to the success of our state. It is imperative that we as a Legislature set our future generations up for success and this bill does just that,” said Deputy Leader Dick Anderson (R-Lincoln City).
