House Bill 3754, Abolish State Charter School Commission; Passed 78 to 33 in the House
To transfer supervision of charter schools to the State Board of Education (ISBE) from the State Charter School Commission, established July 2011. ISBE already oversees the state’s 860 public school districts. Under current law, new charter schools must be approved by local school districts; this bill would give ISBE oversight discretion to address appeals of rejected charter school proposals.
