Charter School Report for 2005-2006

 

 

Section 22.1-212.11. of the Code of Virginia requires local school boards to report annually to the Board of Education the number of public charter school applications that were granted or denied, the reasons for such denials, and whether the charter was designed to increase the education opportunities of at-risk students. After the information is collected, the Board of Education must report the findings to the Governor and the General Assembly.

To comply with this legislative requirement, school divisions must complete the attached Charter School Report for the 2005-2006 school year by June 2, 2006, and fax it to Diane Jay, associate director, in the Office of Program Administration and Accountability. The fax number is (804) 371-7347. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Jay by e-mail at Diane.Jay@doe.virginia.gov, or by telephone at (804) 225-2905.
