The Charter School Governance, Accountability, and Authority Task Force (CSGTF) held its first meeting Wednesday, July 20.

The Task Force is co-chaired by Senate Education Committee Chair Jill Tokuda and House Education Committee Vice-Chair Della Au Belatti.

Representatives from the Legislature, Governor’s office, Board of Education, Department of Education, Charter School Administrative Office, Charter School Review Panel, Charter School Network, Hookakoo Corporation, and Kamehameha Schools are expected to participate on the task force as set forth in SB1174 (Act 130).

“Today’s meeting was a good start to a great opportunity to ensure that our Charter School system has a high level of accountability, clear lines of authority and a strong governance structure that will result in even better schools,” Tokuda said.

CSGTF was established under Senate Bill 1174 (Act 130). The bill was introduced to address several issues brought to surface relating Charter Schools.

June 20th is the first of five meetings scheduled for CSGTF. A report is due to the Legislature 20 days before 2012 session
