Seven organizations have filed to open charter schools in Washington in the state’s second-ever round of applications.
The proposed schools include California-based charter chains… a bilingual school… and a school that would teach partly in sign language.
Three of the schools would be in Spokane, with the rest in Seattle, Sunnyside, and Pierce and Clark Counties.
Three of the groups had applied unsuccessfully to open schools last year.
The state’s charter school authorizers will decide which applications to approve, if any, by mid-October.
