TRENTON – The Senate Education Committee will meet on Monday, August 16, to discuss a measure that would revamp New Jersey’s charter school regulation system. The meeting is scheduled to be held at 10 AM in Committee Room 6 of the State House Annex.
State Department of Education (DOE) Commissioner Bret D. Schundler is scheduled to attend the hearing to outline the Department’s priorities regarding education policy in New Jersey.
The meeting will also focus on S-2198, a measure sponsored by Senate Education Chair Teresa Ruiz, D-Newark and Senator Sandra Bolden Cunningham, D-Hudson, which would enable Rutgers University to authorize charter schools. The bill would also expedite the approval of charter school applications, and permit the authorization of special purpose charter schools.#
