Florida Board of Education delays consideration of charter school capital outlay changes



Plans to revise Florida's rules governing charter school capital outlay funding have been put on hold.

A proposal, based on new laws adopted this spring, were scheduled to appear on the Florida Board of Education's June 22 agenda. When the Department of Education published that document, though, the item did not appear.

A department spokeswoman said the rule revision apparently was not ready for board review, and it would be set for a future meeting date.

In the meantime, the board will discuss other issues when it convenes at Palm Beach State College. Most of the proposed rule changes are fairly minor, though, with most appearing on the consent agenda.

Perhaps the most notable item would set new passing scores for teacher certification tests in business education and Spanish. See the proposal here.
