he State Board of Education on Wednesday voted to finalize proposals presented last month to improve Aurora Central High School and HOPE Online charter schools.

Board member Steve Durham opposed both plans. Board member Rebecca McClellan opposed the plan for HOPE Online.

The proposal for Aurora Central is to continue following a plan to give the school more autonomy while getting help from an outside company.

Under the proposed plan for HOPE Online charter schools, which only applies to the low-performing elementary and middle schools, the charter will work with a former state education department official to help recruit and better train teachers. It will also appoint new board members.

HOPE is the state’s only charter school facing state intervention this year.
