  1. Charter…. A great start! 2014 Charter School policy and facility summit Oct 6, 2014 Representative bob rankin, HD 57

  2. General Charter School Information: • The Colorado Charter Schools Act passed 21 years ago in 1993 • In the 2013-14 school year, 95,860 students were enrolled in charter schools in Colorado. • Currently there are 200 charter schools operating in the state. • Charter schools are in the business of culture change

  3. Culture Change Usually Requires A Crisis • Examples: • Ford • New Orleans

  4. Money follows the student • Louisiana • Types of schools: • Christian/Private/Public/Charter/Online/Dual enrollment Results in New Orleans: • 90% in Charter schools • Students proficient in Reading and Math doubled in 5 years • Saved taxpayers $10’s of millions • 93% parent satisfaction

  5. Our Crisis • Funding • Test Scores • Accountability • Workforce • Rural Districts

  6. We have the tools • Choice • Innovation • Entrepreneurship • Technology • Examples • KIPP • Denver School of Technology …and problems that must be solved.

  7. Recent Legislation • SB 13-260 “School Finance Act” • Increased charter school capital construction funding by $1 million (from $6 million to $7 million). • HB 14-1292 “Student Success Act” • Increased charter school capital construction by $6.5 million in FY 2014-15 and $13 million in subsequent years. • HB 14-1314 “School District & Charter School Mill Levy Override”

  8. Charter Challenges • AN EQUAL PLAYING FIELD • Charters do not receive the same PPOR (Per Pupil Operating Revenue) as traditional schools • Bond and mill levy revenues shared with charters varies significantly from one district to the next • Capital construction funds for charter school were increased this year, but more must be done • Transportation should be more available • PUBLIC PERCEPTION THAT CHOICE, COMPETITION AND INNOVATION CAN SOLVE MANY OF OUR CRISIS ISSUES AND LEAD TO IMPROVEMENT IN ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS.

  9. “Charter schools make our system stronger through choice and competition.”
