DOVER, Delaware — The state Senate is poised to vote on a bill establishing a moratorium on new charter schools in Delaware.

The legislation to be voted on Tuesday creates a moratorium until June 2018 or until the state school board develops a strategic plan for the number of charter, traditional and vocational/technical schools in Delaware.

The legislation also calls for input to be accepted from the mayor and city council of Wilmington before any new charters are approved there.

Last month, Gov. Jack Markell ordered a statewide review of public schools to determine what student needs are going unmet and ordered a halt to new charter schools until the completion the review, which is expected to take about a year.
