SB 23 - This act would allow any school district to authorize charter schools within the district upon approval by voters of the district. The issue may be brought to a vote by an order adopted by the school board or by an initiative petition in the district signed by district residents numbering at least 10% of the last gubernatorial vote. If the proposal is approved, the school board may sponsor charter schools in the district, and the proposal may also allow 4-year public colleges in the same or an adjoining county and community colleges in the county to sponsor charter schools in the district.
