Bill Would Lift Charter School Cap

HB 481, Rep. Bob Nonini's bill to lift both of Idaho's current caps on creation of new charter schools - the six per year total statewide, and the one new one per year per school district - is up for a hearing in Nonini's House Education Committee this morning. Rep. Cliff Bayer, R-Boise, Nonini's co-sponsor, told the committee that the cap “limits Idaho's competitiveness for federal grants,” and also may be keeping some private foundations from awarding grants to Idaho charter schools. “The existence of the cap is limiting opportunity to bring non-state funds into the state for charter schools,” Bayer said/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.
