GOVERNOR SIGNS HISTORIC LAW (SB126) TO ENSURE CHARTER SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY
Charter schools, including those run by private management companies, must follow all open meetings laws, provide open records to parents and voters. The new law also prevents charter operators and their family from profiting off charter school contracts, but it's only the beginning ...

AB 1505 by Assemblymember O’Donnell ensures all matters related to charter schools’ authorization, renewal and other key decisions are made by the local school governing board—those who actually know and manage the school district. AB 1506 by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty establishes a cap on the growth of charter schools. The current, unchecked and unregulated growth has led to destabilizing school districts and the proliferation of privately-managed charters. AB 1507 by Assemblymember Christy Smith closes a loophole in current law which allows a charter school to operate outside of its authorizing school district. AB 1508 by Assemblymember Rob Bonta would allow authorizers to consider fiscal impact, academic achievement and facility impacts when considering the authorization of new charter school petitions. More information on these bills is available here. Summary
