2010 Charter School Law, Louisiana
This is an updated version of the state law in Louisiana governing charter schools. Language in all capital letters reflects what was passed in the most recent state legislative session. New elements include a requirement that local school boards publicize guidelines for submitting a charter school proposal and the person to contact, a clarification of what charter schools should pay for use of district facilities, a provision for charter schools to give enrollment preference to students in a specific area around the school, automatic renewal for high-performing charter schools, and a rule that 50 percent of each teacher and administrator performance evaluation be based on growth in student achievement. The law also includes an exception for charters focused on military personnel’s dependents to an enrollment requirement involving students eligible for free or reduced cost meals.
