TASA was among 17 education groups that submitted joint comments to TEA December 20 in response to proposed commissioner’s rules on charter school performance frameworks and expansions. These rules would provide for automatic expansion of charter schools that meet certain requirements. Read the letter.
The proposed rules could allow greater expansions of charter schools, with some charter schools receiving nearly unfettered authority for expansions. This could have a tremendous financial impact on the Foundation School Program, school districts, students, and taxpayers.
TEA has scheduled a public hearing on both sets of rules for Monday, January 13 at 9 a.m. in the Travis Building (1701 N. Congress, Austin).
