A proposed change in a rule on how charter school sponsors would be measured on their compliance with state laws has been delayed for now.

On a party line vote, a Republican-dominated panel of lawmakers sent the charter schools rule back to the state office that reviews regulations for their impact on business. But that office has already done a report on this rule. Republican Sen. Joe Uecker of the Cincinnati area says this move is not just an effort to delay charter school sponsors’ evaluations – which are supposed to come out in October.

Republican Sen. Gayle Manning of North Ridgeville says parents are telling her it’s too hot to start school now, and that many families still want to squeeze in a vacation.

So she’s proposing that if districts want to start earlier than Labor Day, they would have to get their communities to approve that.
