Description: The bill would allow any school in the lowest achieving 5% of schools to be converted to a charter school. Specifically, the bill gives certain parents and teachers the the ability to petition the local school board to determine the district’s intervention model (Closure, Restart, Transformation, Turnaround). If a valid petition recommends the a restart model, the parents may apply to convert the school to a charter. The school board has 7 days notify every parent that the school was placed under the State School Reform/Redesign Officer (SRRO) and inform them of the petition process to determine the intervention model. Parents have 90 day after the school was placed under the SRRO to submit a parental petition to MDE recommending a model.
