STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen

 

AN ACT relative to grounds for denial of a chartered public school application.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Chartered Public Schools; Chartered Public School Approval by State Board of Education.  Amend RSA 194-B:3-a, IV to read as follows:

IV.  The state board of education shall either approve or deny an application using reasonable discretion in the assessment of the elements set forth in RSA 194-B:3, II, (a)-(bb) and (dd).  [Lack of state funding alone shall not constitute grounds for the denial of an application.] Approval of an application constitutes the granting of charter status and the right to operate as a chartered public school.  The state board of education shall notify all applicants of its decision in writing, and shall include in any notice of denial a written statement specifying any areas deemed deficient, the reasons for the denial, and explaining that the applicant may reapply under RSA 194-B:3 or under this section in a subsequent year.

2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect January 1, 2020.
