Raleigh, N.C. - Yesterday Rep. Jon Hardister (R - Guilford) filed HB 250, which addresses enrollment procedures for charter schools in North Carolina. The bill would expand preferential enrollment to the children of all school employees; allow for all siblings to enter a charter school under a lottery; and allow re-enrollment priority for a student who leaves a charter school for less than two years due to special circumstances. Reps. Marcus Brandon (D - Guilford), Donny Lambeth (R - Forsyth), and Paul Stam (R - Wake) have joined Hardister as primary sponsors of the bill.

"It is important that we work to improve our charter school system in North Carolina," Hardister said. "This is a bipartisan bill, and I am hopeful that it will move forward successfully in the NC House."
