ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Charter schools have continued to experience growth in student enrollment and in the number of
schools. The growth in California charter school student enrollment has been steady for the last
several years and not anticipated to change much in the near future. The number of active charter
schools is just above 1,000 for the 2012-13 fiscal year. Traditional school agencies approving charter schools - potential liability issues, Proposition 39 requirements, and other ralated changes in state law.
This workshop will help school agencies meet their oversight responsibilities, evaluate - and improve - proposals for new and renewal charter schools, and respond to requests for facilities. In addition, this workshop will provide opportunities for authoring agencies to learn and share best practices and experiences.
State law provides that a charter school application cannot be denied unless certain findings are made, and given the very short timelines for responding to charter school proposals, school agencies must be prepared before a proposal is submitted. Similarly, since school districts must provide facilities for district residents attending charter schools - even if another agency approved the charter school and even if the district is already at capacity regarding facilities - school districts need to be aware of their obligations under current law and plan ahead on how to accommodate facility requests.
