YAKIMA, Wash. -- Washington State's Charter School Commission met in Yakima today to go over the rules and applications for new schools.
The commission reviewed new regulations that could affect the time line of the proposal.
Applications have to be submitted by November 22nd.
People behind a proposed charter school here in Yakima that would cater to English and Spanish speakers see this as a big opportunity.
"I think communication is really important and being bilingual is a big opportunity,” said Bertha-Alicia Garza a Yakima Charter School supporter.
The commission will try to approve the applications before the end of February. It's considering allowing more time for applications so plans can be ready by September.
