Appeal Process

A denied charter school applicant may appeal to the State Board of Education within 30 days of the resolution to deny the charter school application. The state board then has 60 days to hear the appeal. If the state board remands the application back to the school district for further consideration, the local board has 30 days to reconsider the application. If at that time, the local board again denies the charter school, the applicant can appeal to the state board a second time. The state board has another 30 days to hear the second appeal. The state board's decision at the second hearing is final.

For Charter School Institute schools, the applicant may also appeal to the State Board of Education within 30 days of the resolution to deny the charter school application. The state board again has 60 days to hear the appeal. For CSI applicants, the initial decision of the State Board of Education is final and not subject to a second appeal.
