Other approved changes would allow, not require, charter schools to give enrollment preference to lower-income students, and would allow charter school students who can not participate in state-sanctioned school athletics at their school to participate in sports at the traditional public school in their district, along with a few other changes. Lois Kolkhorst, who filed Senate Bill 6 on January 5.

"I congratulate Sen. Kolkhorst on the passage of SB 6 and thank her for both her leadership on this issue and her commitment to protecting the safety and privacy of Texans".

Supporters say the schools would provide more options for parents and students while opponents say charter schools would drain resources from traditional public schools.

Kentucky lawmakers have wrapped up work on a bill that would set guidelines for the governor when replacing entire public university boards or individual members. Under a bill sponsored by Rep. Earl Ehrhart, R-Powder Springs, schools that adopt such policies in the future would lose state funding.
