Senate Bill 163
152nd General Assembly (Present)
Adopted in Lieu of original; takes status of original
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO CHARTER SCHOOLS.
This bill updates the State’s charter school law to codify the original intent of charter school flexibility. More specifically, the bill provides charter schools the ability to hire the leaders they deem beneficial to the success of the school’s educational program and the needs of students and staff. The bill creates new subsections in Section 507(c) of Title 14 of the Delaware Code to define the licensure and certification requirements more clearly within Chapter 5 of Title 14. Finally, the bill requires the Secretary of Education to work with the Delaware Charter Schools Network to create a qualified alternative licensure and certification pathway for charter school administrators engaged in the instruction of students (Instructional Administrators).
