The Charter School Governance, Accountability, and Authority Task Force (CSGTF) held its final meeting on December 7, 2011.
Some of the key points of the recommendations are: creating clear lines for authorizer responsibilities, changing the name of the Charter School Review Panel to Public Charter School Commission and the tightening of performance contracts.
The recommendations are the result of twenty task force and working group meetings. The recommendations will be included in a report to the Legislature, which is due 20 days before the 2012 Session.
“Working with our local charter school community and national experts in the model law and best practices, we will be putting forth substantive reforms that maintain autonomy while ensuring accountability,” said Sen. Jill Tokuda, Senate Education Chair and Co-chair of the CSGTF.Posted by Hawaii Senate Majority Caucus | 0 comments
