Title Rebuttable Presumption In Charter School Appeals

Bill Subjects
  • Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)
House Sponsors J. Bacon (D)

House Committee Education
Senate Committee
Date Introduced 04/26/2021

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.
