Bill Purpose:
Increases lottery preference in the charter school selection system for students in the geographic zone of a school.

Bill Sponsor:
Peterson (D)

Committee:
Education

OPEN Comments:
OPEN advocates strong neighborhood schools, but this bill could be used by schools in privileged neighborhoods to keep underprivileged students out. We would support an amendment addressing the prevention of keeping less-resourced students from more-resourced schools.
