EDUCATION – Amends existing law to revise the definition of “authorized chartering entity.”

RS30129C1 / H0290

This legislation removes the prohibition on sectarian higher-ed institutions from being an authorized chartering entity for public charter schools. It also clarifies what accreditation requirements a college or university must possess to be an authorized chartering entity for a public charter school.

The only anticipated cost associated with this legislation are the costs normally borne by the charter school being authorized. There is no additional cost to state or local governments.
