Relations with Institute Charter Schools

(School Boards with Exclusive Chartering Authority)

It is the intent of the Board of Education to retain exclusive chartering authority. In doing so, the Board is responsible for approval and oversight of charter schools operating within the boundaries of the school district. The Board directs the superintendent to take necessary steps to ensure that the Board retains its exclusive chartering authority.

It is the Board’s understanding that once the Board obtains exclusive chartering authority this authority shall continue so long as the district complies with state law relating to fair and equitable treatment of charter schools.

Adopted: September 23, 2013

LEGAL REF.: C.R.S. 22-30.5-504 (criteria for obtaining exclusive chartering authority)
