Washington State Charter Commission Meeting

I'm off to the Washington State Charter Commission meeting this morning.  I'm most interested in the discussion about the latest lawsuit against the latest law.  I'm also interested to learn more about how Green Dot is going to provide free management services to Excel Charter School.

I'm unlikely to stay for the entire meeting but I do want to learn about the Commission's
funding and appropriations so I'll be there until just after lunch.

Thank you for attending this meeting, Melissa.

I appreciate your work, time and effort.

Summit charter school has decided to expand. Considering SB 6194 is in the court system, I find the expansion to be- interesting.

More private school students from the North End want to attend Summit charter?
