Raleigh, N.C. - Yesterday Rep. Jon Hardister (R - Guilford) filed HB 273, which addresses accounting issues related to charter school funding. The bill would require local education authorities to provide an accounting of charter school funds and a time line for the transfer of funds. It would also require local education authorities to transfer charter school funds on time. Reps. Marcus Brandon (D - Guilford), Chris Malone (R - Wake), and Paul Stam (R - Wake) have joined Hardister as primary sponsors of the bill.
"The purpose of this bill is to bring more transparency to the funding of charter schools," Hardister said. "It is reasonable to require details on how funds are transferred to charter schools. It is also reasonable to require charter school funds to be transferred on time. This is a bipartisan bill, and I am hopeful that it will move forward successfully."
