AB 950   (Rubio D) Sponsor
Charter schools.
Location: 3/2/2017 - A .  ED.
Bill Text
Text
Current law, the Charter Schools Act of 1992, authorizes a charter school petitioner, if the governing board of a school district denies a petition for the establishment of a charter school, to submit the petition to the county board of education, and, if the county board of education denies the petition, to then submit the petition to the State Board of Education. A charter school that is granted its charter through an appeal to the state board is required to submit a petition for renewal of the charter to the governing board of the school district that initially denied the charter. This bill would instead authorize the petitioner to submit a petition for renewal to either the governing board of the school district that initially denied the charter or directly to the state board.  
 
AB 1224   (Weber D) Sponsor
Charter schools: Chartering Authority Pilot Program.
Location: 3/9/2017 - A .  ED.
Bill Text
Text
Would establish the Chartering Authority Pilot Program under which the state board would be authorized to select up to 3 county boards of education with demonstrated authorizing and oversight capacity to authorize and oversee up to 5 additional charter schools each. The bill would authorize a nonprofit public benefit corporation that operates more than one charter school in the state to petition a county board of education participating in the pilot program to consolidate some or all of its existing and future charter schools under the jurisdiction of a single chartering authority, subject to approval by the state board.  
 
SB 765   (Wiener D) Sponsor
School facilities: surplus real property: charter schools.
Location: 4/26/2017 - S .  APPR.
Bill Text
Text
Current law requires the governing board of a school district seeking to sell or lease real property designed to provide direct instruction or instructional support that the governing board deems to be surplus property to first provide a written offer to sell or lease that property to any charter school that has submitted a written request to the school district to be notified of surplus real property offered by the school district for sale or lease, as specified. This bill would exempt from the requirement to first provide a written offer to the above-specified charter schools the governing board of a school district seeking to sell or lease surplus property intended to be used in accordance with the Teacher Housing Act of 2016 in a county with a Traditional Housing Affordability Index of 20% or less.  
 
SB 806   (Glazer D) Sponsor
Charter schools: operation: for-profit entities.
Location: 4/26/2017 - S .  JUD.
Bill Text
Text
Would require a charter school to operate as or by a nonprofit public benefit corporation or be operated by a school district or county office of education and would provide that an authority that grants a charter for the establishment of a charter school formed and organized as a nonprofit public benefit corporation is entitled to one representative on the board of directors of the nonprofit public benefit corporation.
