Mixture of groups show interest in charter schools

SEATTLE -- Parents and others interested in education got another hint on Tuesday about what kind of schools may become Washington state's first charter schools.
Organizations that want to open one of the new public schools in fall 2014 were required to turn in a letter of intent by the end of the day on Tuesday. They have another month to complete their applications.
Among those who have expressed interest in opening a charter school in Washington state, under the new law approved by voters last November, are two charter management organizations that already run charter schools in California. Several private schools have expressed interest in converting to public charter schools. And a number of others are making their first attempt to start a school.
Their application must include plans for a building, curriculum, budgeting, staffing and other details.
