Extractions: Charter Law Suspended Until November 2. Dear Friends, The Washington Education Association filed 18,108 petitions sheets with Secretary of State's office this morning, containing an estimated 150,000+ signatures. This is more than enough to qualify R-55 for the November ballot, even assuming that a much higher than usual percentage of the signatures are invalid. Although it won't be official for 2-3 weeks, we should assume that R-55 will qualify for the November ballot. The WEA claimed that of the 150,000 signatures filed, volunteers collected 120,000 signatures while paid signature gatherers collected 30,000. However, there is no way to verify WEA's claim since the petitions used by both groups were intermingled. As you may recall, the union originally said that it could qualify R-55 without using any paid signature gatherers. For example, in the April edition of UPDATE, the newsletter of the Lake Washington Education Association, the WEA wrote:

Extractions: June 9, 2004 â OSPI was notified today by the Secretary of Stateâs office that petitions have been received for Referendum 55, the proposed ballot measure that will allow voters to keep or repeal the charter school law passed during the 2004 legislative session. The receipt of these signatures means that charter schools legislation â which was slated to go into effect on June 10, 2004 â is suspended at least until the Secretary of Stateâs office verifies the number of signatures of registered voters on the Referendum 55 petitions. If enough votersâ signatures have been gathered to qualify Referendum 55 for the November ballot, the charter schools law will remain suspended until the results of the general election are certified on December 2.

Extractions: If you are a PTA member and would like additional information about this issue, click here Charter schools are schools that operate under a contract, or charter, with local school boards or other governing agencies. This contract may free charter schools from many of the regulations other schools face. The concept underlying charter schools is that regulations inhibit innovation or creative school reform efforts. The charter school movement has grown from one school in Minnesota in 1992, to almost 3,000 schools in 36 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico in 2003. Iowa, New Hampshire, and Tennessee have charter laws but no charter schools yet. Charter schools enroll approximately half a million children, or less than two percent of the public school population. Despite the rapid adoption of charter school legislation and bipartisan political support, there remains considerable controversy about the quality of and need for charter schools. According to two major studies of the existing research on charter schools, the evidence on charter school achievement is mixed.

The focus on quality and choice that took hold then has transformed the way we think about and deliver education today. Navigating the school choice landscape these days can be confusing.

Extractions: WASHINGTON CHARTER SCHOOLS: Washington Charter School initiatives failed public votes by slim margins in both 1996 and 2000. This past spring, 2003, the concept of charter schools finally gained legislative support in both the State Senate and the State House of Representatives. Legislation has been readied for a final vote only to be delayed by state-wide economic concerns and special attention being focused on Boeing the budget. After concluding the regular legislative session and a special legislative session this spring, House Speaker, Frank Chopp, failed to bring the legislation to the House floor for a final vote, twice. Washington State House of Representative and Senate leaders are ready to vote in favor of approving Washington charter school legislation. Supportive votes for Washington charter schools are there and ready to be counted. As it has been before, it is only a matter of time before Washington charter school legislation is approved.
Extractions: We will begin compiling an on-line photo album made up of great photos and give credit to the individuals who have taken the shots and their teams if that information is provided. As soon as sufficient resources are collected, a select group of students will begin organizing the photos and information which will have been collected. Hopefully this will result in a comprehensive tool specifically geared toward helping Science Olympiad students.
