Supreme Court Upholds Limits on Charter School Locations

Supreme Court Upholds Limits on Charter School Locations

Sacramento, CA

A California Supreme Court ruling on Monday will lead to the closure of a good number of charter schools around the state. 

The judge’s ruling placed restrictions on where independent charter schools can operate resource centers thus upholding an appeals court ruling made last fall. The ruling involved an existing law which established a requirement that charters can only operate centers within the boundaries of the district that authorizes them. 

The Charter Schools Development Center reported the ruling could impact more than 100 charter school resource centers that serve as many as 38,000 students. The Charter Schools Development Center is recognized as the leading experts in charter school law, policy, finance, school design, authorizing, governance and personnel. 

Local charters affected the ruling include Options for Youth Victor Valley and Excelsior Charter Schools chartered by the Victor Valley Union High School District; the Mojave River Academy chartered by the Oro Grande School District and Alta Vista Public Charter Schools chartered by the Adelanto Elementary School District. 

Until these schools can work out a solution to the ruling, California Charter Schools Association Inland Empire Regional Director Fatima Adame told the Victor Valley Daily Press, “Although there's seemingly not yet any long-term solution offered for affected charters, school districts can request a waiver on behalf of the charters they oversee.”
