(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah's new charter school board has set the groundwork for its continuing operation.

Yesterday was the governor-appointed board's first meeting. It included decisions on leaders and administrative procedures and agreement to hear proposals from three groups hoping to open schools.

The Legislature created the charter board during this year's general session. The board will take over responsibilities that had belonged to the state Board of Education, including oversight of existing charters.

The board is made up of three charter-school representatives, two business officials and two members recommended by the state Board of Education.
