Governor Signs SB 738 Into Law!

by

SB 738 has been signed into law and will take effect September 1st!

This law allows the parents of kids attending a failing school to petition the Commission of Education, currently Robert Scott, to change the management of their school to a private management company, i.e. charter school manager.  If the school has failed for more than two consecutive years, a petition signed by a majority of the parents is sent to the Commissioner’s desk.

The Commissioner still has the final say in making the change, but the petition gives him a strong incentive to grant the parents’ petition.
