Charter Schools Exempted from Standard Operating Rules

Sacramento, CA

A measure that called for California charter schools to comply with state requirements as defined by the California Public Records Act and conflict of interest laws was once again vetoed by Governor Brown—nearly two years ago the governor rejected a similar bill. 

This year’s measure, Assembly Bill 709, had strong support from the California School Boards Association, the Association of California School Administrators and a number of other school management groups, as well as the California Teachers’ Association. 

In his formal veto message, the Governor used the exact same verbiage he used to scuttle the previous version of this bill. “While I support transparency, this bill goes further than simply addressing issues of potential conflicts of interest and goes too far in prescribing how these boards must operate.”
