Now that both rounds of hearings for 40 new charter school applicants are over, the School District posted the evaluations for the proposed schools today.

People can look through the reports and submit public comment by Sunday, Feb. 1, three days from now. Comments can be emailed, dropped off at District headquarters, or mailed.

The School Reform Commission is required to vote on each charter application by Feb. 21. District spokesman Fernando Gallard said that no meeting date for votes has been set.
