The act extends the timeline from 12 months to 18 months before a charter school is set to open for a prospective charter school to submit to the local board of education an application to become a charter school. The act allows a local board of education to apply to the state board of education for modifications to the timeline set forth in this act. The act creates an optional charter school application timeline for a rural or small rural school district that allows charter school applications outside of the 18-month timeline upon notice to the department of education and public notice on the school district's website.
