District Public Charter Schools        (Jan 2014)

Polk County LWV Local Consensus January 2014
  1.  The school grade assessed by the State of Florida shall take into consideration the type of student population of each public school including charter schools. Schools with entry/exit policies that dismiss students with low grades, poor FCAT test scores or academic retention at grade level shall be graded on a different scale than schools that do not have such entry/exit policies for student membership at the school.
  2. All charter school management companies and/or boards shall be required by law to be made up of a majority of people residing in the local (County) district and shall have the same transparency required of other public boards.         
  3. Each district and the charters within that district shall be required by law to meet at least once annually to share successful, innovative programs.      
  4. Federal and Florida State regulations for all public schools shall be as flexible as those for charter schools, providing the same opportunities for creativity and innovation that  are currently allowed only in charter schools
