A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO PROVIDE FOR ENROLLMENT PRIORITY AND PROCEDURES FOR CERTAIN STUDENTS APPLYING TO CHARTER SCHOOLS AND TO MAKE CHANGES AS TO WHAT QUALIFIES AS A MATERIAL REVISION TO A CHARTER APPLICATION.
Senate amendments to the 4th edition make the following changes.
Amendment #1 amends GS 115C-238.29D(f) to provide that it is not considered a material charter application revision, and does not require prior approval, for a charter school to expand to offer one grade higher than the charter school currently offers (was, expand to offer grades four and five if the school has previously been authorized to offer kindergarten through third grade).
Amendment #2 amends the admission requirements in GS 115C-238.29F(g) to require the charter school, within one year after beginning operation, to make efforts for the school's population to reasonably reflect (was, within one year after the charter school begins operation, the school's population must reasonably reflect) the racial and ethnic composition of the general population residing in the local school administrative unit or that of the special population that the school seeks to serve residing within the local school administrative unit where the school is located.
Amendment #3 amends GS 115C-238.29F(g) to create a limit of no more than 15% (was, no more than 10%) of the school's total enrollment consisting of children of the school's full time employees, and, for its first year of operation, children of the initial members of the school's board of directors so long as the school is not a former public or private school. Adds the possibility of a waiver from this requirement by the State Board of Education.
