PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOLS
33-5205A. Transfer of charter. (1) A charter and performance certificate for a public charter school may be transferred to, and placed under the chartering authority of, any authorized chartering entity if the current authorizer, the receiving authorizer, and the board of directors of the public charter school all agree to such transfer, including any revision to the charter and performance certificate that may be required in connection with such transfer. Provided however, that a charter and performance certificate shall not be transferred to a school district board of trustees in which the public charter school is not physically located. A request to transfer a charter may be initiated by the board of directors of a public charter school or by the authorized chartering entity with chartering authority over the charter of such public charter school.
(2) A public charter school, authorized by any authorized chartering entity except a school district board of trustees, which has a primary attendance area located within more than one (1) school district, may transfer the physical location of its public charter school within its primary attendance area to locate the facilities within the boundaries of another school district within the primary attendance area if the authorized chartering entity, the board of trustees of each of the relevant school districts and the board of directors of the public charter school all approve of such transfer of facilities location, and if the authorized chartering entity approves any revisions to the charter that may be required in connection with such transfer.
(3) If all parties fail to reach agreement in regard to the request to transfer a charter and performance certificate, as required herein, then the matter may be appealed directly to the state board of education. With respect to such appeal, the state board of education shall substantially follow the procedure as provided in section 33-5207(5)(b), Idaho Code. A transferred charter school shall not be considered a new public charter school.
