Current Bill Summary


SB 1033 – This act requires the State Board of Education to establish standards for charter school sponsors to conduct annual Missouri school improvement plan assessments of each sponsored charter school. The standards must include an evaluation of: curriculum and instruction, facilities, health and safety, educational programs and compliance with state performance standards, adequacy of the sponsoring agency's support, operation and performance of the school's governing board, and the quality of the partnership between the school, sponsor, and local school district.

The sponsor of a charter school must annually conduct a Missouri school improvement plan assessment of each school it sponsors based on the State Board of Education's standards. A sponsor of a charter school may revoke a school's charter, or place it on probationary status, if the school fails to meet the standards under the sponsor's annual Missouri school improvement plan assessment.

This act is identical to provisions contained in perfected SCS/SB 815 (2010).
