ARKANSAS: Lawmakers Propose New Charter School Panel

arkansas-capitolLITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Arkansas state lawmakers are proposing to change the process for approving new charter schools.

Republican Rep. Mark Biviano of Searcy filed a bill Thursday that would establish a new independent state commission to oversee charter schools.

The new panel would consist of four members appointed by lawmakers and one member appointed by the governor. The commission members would initially serve for terms of two, three, or four years, followed by a five-year term.

The commission would be responsible for authorizing new charter schools. That responsibility currently falls to the state’s Board of Education.

29 representatives and three senators have signed on to the bill.
