JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The chairwoman of the House Education Committee is looking to meld provisions of her education bill to one proposed by Gov. Sean Parnell.

Rep. Lynn Gattis says certain part of her bill have been more complicated than she originally thought and are expected to get further scrutiny.

Those provisions are related to student busing and proposed expansion of who can authorize charter schools.

One issue the committee plans to clarify is whether charter schools become school districts by virtue of having a third-party authorizing agency approve their charter.
