From the AP:
The State Board of Education says two Washington school districts
have formally expressed interest in applying to be charter school
Those districts are Eastmont in East Wenatchee and the Highline school district south of Seattle.
school district that wants to authorize charter schools during the next
year are required to tell the State Board of Education by April 1 that
they plan to apply.
The News Tribune also has reported that the
Tacoma School District will discuss the idea of joining that list at its
March 28 meeting.
It will be interesting to see if any other school districts file by April 1. Otherwise that will truly leave the Charter Commission as the place to go (as districts can only okay charters that open in their own districts).
