Sen. Dan Feltes sponsored a 2016 bill establishing a much needed “charter school program officer” in the department of education and worked diligently with others to fund it in 2017.
“provide assistance to stakeholders in other school choice opportunities”
and the responsibilities include,
“….technical assistance and professional development…related to charter schools, home schools and non-public schools….
Directs and evaluates the development of long-range plans, goals and objectives related to school choice options in New Hampshire.
Evaluates, and interprets program policies, procedures, and guidelines for public school choice in New Hampshire.
Communicates with professionals and policymakers in the state concerning state policies, legislation, and current programs.
This looks more like a school choice lobbyist than a charter school program officer and should draw close legislative oversight review.
