2013 House Bill 4369

House Roll Call 146: Passed

To codify in statute the authority of a state “education achievement authority,” which is an office in the Department of Education tasked with reforming public schools whose performance is in the bottom 5 percent for two consecutive years. Not more than 50 schools could eventually be subject to this office's authority (phased in through June 2017), and their management could be transferred to a charter school or another conventional school district. Alternatively, the local intermediate school district could choose to take over a failed school's management.
