cosponsored by Representatives Kooyenga, Honadel, J. Ott, Kleefisch,

SB76,1,2 1An Act to create 118.40 (3) (f) of the statutes; relating to: contracts for
2additional charter schools.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a school board may enter into a contract with an individual,
group, business, or governmental body to establish a charter school, which operates
with fewer constraints than traditional public schools. Current law also permits the
University of Wisconsin (UW) Milwaukee, UW-Parkside, the Milwaukee Area
Technical College, and the city of Milwaukee to operate charter schools (independent
charter schools) directly or to contract for the operation of charter schools.
This bill requires a school board or other entity that has contracted with a
person to operate a charter school to amend the contract or enter into a new contract
with the operator to allow the operator to establish an additional charter school if,
in the school report published by the Department of Public Instruction for the two
most recent school years, each of the charter schools operated by the person in this
state received a rating of "significantly exceeds expectations" or "exceeds
expectations."
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
