There are 9 other charters that have already been approved for next year so as many as 16 charters could open, although it’s likely some will open in 2015.
The 11 charter operators that were rejected can go to the IL state charter commission to appeal. These schools get higher per pupil funding rates than rest of CPS schools.
There is a bill in Springfield to end this commission and we can help out by asking our state reps to co-sponsor this bill. Email us for more info:firstname.lastname@example.org
