WASHINGTON: Two districts plan to apply to be charter approvers

washingtonThe State Board of Education says two Washington school districts have formally expressed interest in applying to be charter school authorizers.

Those districts are Eastmont in East Wenatchee and the Highline school district south of Seattle.

Any school district that wants to authorize charter schools during the next year are required to tell the State Board of Education by April 1 that they plan to apply.

The News Tribune also has reported that the Tacoma School District will discuss the idea of joining that list at its March 28 meeting.

Voters in November approved an initiative that would bring charter schools to Washington. Those schools can be authorized in two ways: by the new statewide Charter School Commission and by school boards that go through the State Board of Education.
