Rep. Kimberly Williams is sponsoring a bill that eliminates admission preferences for students living within a 5-mile radius of a charter school. This change was supported by a majority vote of the Enrollment Preferences Task Force established by House Bill 90 of the last session of the General Assembly. The Act will take effect for the 2018-2019 school year, and any charter schools currently using the 5-mile preference must cease application of that preference at that time.
HISTORY: Placed in the House Education Committee on 3/21/17
STATUS: Reported out of committee on 4/5/17. Ready for a vote on the House floor.
