Charter School Policy on 60-day Public Comment

Charter School Policy on 60-day public comment

As required by law, the West Virginia Board of Education has promulgated rules for the implementation of the charter school provisions of the omnibus education bill passed in June. The proposed policy is out on a 60-day public comment, rather than a 30-day comment period thanks to a motion by WV BOE member Debra Sullivan.

Update on SB 451 from AFT-WV President Fred Albert (2-14-19)

Update on SB 451, what happens next in the process, and our next steps (2-14-19)
SB 451 passed the House today overwhelmingly in a 71-29 vote. The version that the House amended and passed is drastically different from the version passed by the Senate.  Before we go any further, let me assure you that I am mindful of the direction given to us by the county leadership of the three organizations in terms of what would trigger a strike.  That option to strike continue to be on the table.
