Charter School Report for 2002-2003

 

 

The 2002 Virginia General Assembly session resulted in charter school legislation that became effective July 1, 2002, and directly affects school divisions and requires action by local school boards.

The Board of Education is required to include the number of charter school applications approved and denied in its annual report to the Governor and General Assembly. The full text of the bill may be viewed at http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?021+ful+CHAP0874.
