AB 950   (Rubio D) Sponsor
Charter schools.
Location: 3/2/2017 - A .  ED.
Bill 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
Would establish the Chartering Authority Pilot Program under which the State Board of Education would be authorized to select up to 5 county boards of education with demonstrated authorizing and oversight capacity to authorize and oversee up to 10 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 all of its existing and future charter schools under the jurisdiction of a single chartering authority, subject to approval by the state board.

Location: 2/17/2017 - S .  RLS.
Bill Text
Current law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to perform certain duties, including, among others, the duty of superintending the schools of this state.This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to these provisions. 
SB 806   (Glazer D) Sponsor
Charter school governance.
Location: 2/17/2017 - S .  RLS.
Bill Text
Would express the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would ensure that charter school governance is transparent, that monitoring and oversight of charter schools is conducted to protect the public interest, and that state law would occupy the field of open meeting, public records, and conflict-of-interest laws as they relate to the governing bodies of charter schools and preempts the application of additional requirements by chartering authorities.
