Key Legislation Progress

Our Legislative Priorities

Proposal:

Enforce the SAME municipal rules for ALL public schools.
Enforce the SAME municipal rules for ALL public schools.

SB 472 & HB 1707

Equalize Charter Facilities Funding

Qualifying public charter schools share a fixed $60M charter facility  appropriation rather than receiving a per-student facilities allotment.

Proposal:

Provide a per-student facilities allotment, as is available to all other public schools.
