West Valley School District Interested in Authorizing Charter Schools

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, WA - Three Washington school districts, including a Yakima school district, say they plan to apply to become charter school authorizers.

The West Valley School District, along with the Tacoma and Highline school districts, are interested in becoming authorizers. In fact, Tacoma and Highline were on the original list of districts what wanted to become an authorizer for their district. However, neither school district turned in an application. 
The school districts have until December 31st to complete their applications to the State Board of Education, if they decide to go ahead with the idea.

Earlier this year, the Spokane School District became the first district to gain authorizer approval from the state board.   

A statewide panel called the Washington Charter School Commission also can approve charter schools in any part of the state.
