2019 Advocacy Agenda


Fair Funding

REPEAL HACKNEY & NESBITT

Hackney Amendment passed in 2010 expanded the list of "restricted" moneys districts may move to "other funds," not shared with charter schools. Nesbitt Amendment passed in 2003 kept charter school students from using per-pupil share of supplemental taxes for schools outside the district. Students cannot benefit from the supplementary taxes their parents pay if they attend a charter school outside their district.

LOTTERY – FACILITY FUNDING

The cost of providing appropriate classroom space for public charter schools is becoming more problematic as waitlists grow and cost increases. We must make ensure public charter schools receive fair proportional funding for capital from lottery proceeds.

WEIGHTED STUDENT FUNDING

The Joint Legislative Task Force of Education Finance Reform is currently charged with studying various weighted student formula models, developing a new funding model and then reporting back to the General Assembly. It is imperative charter schools participate in this process. NC-CCS is committed to giving input making sure charters receive fair funding.


Regulatory

STATE BOARD POLICY & NC RULES REVIEW COMMISSION

General Assembly recently mandated the State Board of Education to send all external policies to the Rules Review Commission. This is an opportunity for charter leaders to give input regarding regulatory issues. NC-CCS will provide detail, professional comments to this process. NC-CCS will keep members aware of what is being discussed in Raleigh.

ALIGNMENT OF STATE STATUTE – SBE POLICY – CHARTER AGREEMENT

Charter School Advisory Board will be reviewing State Board policy and the Charter Agreement requirements in light of State Statute. Charters must have a voice as this review takes place in Raleigh. Again, NC-CCS will be a voice for you.
