Charter schools are independently managed public schools that are authorized and overseen by a state charter school commission or local school board and managed by approved non-profit organizations. Initiative 1240 will allow up to 40 public charter schools in Washington state over a five-year period and hold them accountable for improving student outcomes. These schools will provide an option for parents of students who are not currently succeeding in our traditional public schools that is not currently allowed in Washington–a choice in education that makes help available to students who need it the most.
Initiative 1240 is supported by a bipartisan coalition of education advocates, teachers, parents, community leaders, and organizations across our state, and support is growing every day. Add your voice to support YES on 1240 by joining our coalition today!
