Education Commissioner Jason E. Glass and Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) General Counsel Todd Allen provided an update on the Kentucky Supreme Court’s recent ruling in a lawsuit involving House Bill (HB) 563 during the Superintendents Webcast on Jan. 10.
The Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) approved 10 regulations relating to public charter schools in Kentucky during its two-day meeting on Oct. 11-12 at the Logan County Career and Technical Center (CTC). The regulations were previously approved by the Local Superintendents Advisory Council.
It is clear that opening a charter school in Kentucky is a priority of the General Assembly. However, in spite of Kentucky actually having a charter school law on the books since 2017, none exist in the state largely because the law does not provide stable funding for charter schools.
