Palm Beach County School Board Wants Review Of Charter School Case


Saying the issue is about “constitutional balance,” the Palm Beach County School Board has filed a brief asking the Florida Supreme Court to take up a dispute about the approval of charter schools.

The school board filed the 12-page brief Friday, as it challenges the constitutionality of a law that allows the State Board of Education to effectively overrule local denials of charter-school applications.


The 4th District Court of Appeal upheld the law in January, prompting the Palm Beach County School Board to ask the Supreme Court to resolve the constitutional issue.

The underlying case stems from an application by Florida Charter Educational Foundation, Inc., and South Palm Beach Charter School to open a charter school.
