Rebuttable Presumption In Charter School Appeals

Concerning creation of a rebuttable presumption in favor of a charter school authorizer's decisions concerning a charter school.
Session:
2021 Regular Session
Subject:
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)
Bill Summary

Under current law, an entity may appeal a decision by a school district board of education (local board) concerning a charter school to the state board of education (state board). The state board reviews the decision to determine whether it was contrary to the best interests of the students, school district, or community.

The bill creates a rebuttable presumption that a local board's decision was in the best interests of the students, school district, or community if the decision was based on at least one of several specified considerations. A person bringing an appeal may overcome the presumption by a preponderance of the evidence demonstrating that the decision was not based on at least one of those considerations.
