ARIZONA: Gov. Brewer signs bill allowing for new admission rules for charter schools

elmira-charter-schoolPHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill into law that allows for new charter school admission preferences benefiting some siblings and grandchildren.

The bill signed Monday extends enrollment preferences to grandchildren and legal wards of charter school employees and to students who previously attended another charter school managed by the same organization.

State law already allowed for admission preferences to returning students, their siblings and the children of charter school employees.

Charter schools pushed for House Bill 2494 and the Republican-led Legislature unanimously passed it.

Some parents backed the measure to ensure their children could attend the same school.

The measure leaves fewer spaces for students without a charter school connection.

Meanwhile, Brewer recently vetoed a bill that would have allowed charter schools to enroll some disabled pre-school students.
