How to Acquire Facilities Under Prop. 39 (PowerPoint and Audio presentation)(Sept. 1, 2011)

Charter schools are entitled to reasonably equivalent facilities from their district. Districts must treat charter and non-charter school students equitably in the allocation of facilities. Know your entitlements under the law so you can negotiate the best facilities solution for your school. If you are a charter school developer or an operating charter school (conversion or startup) you can benefit from this online workshop. We provide tips for submitting a Prop. 39 request, responding to the District’s offers, and negotiating a facilities use agreement that protects the charter school’s rights. Learn to negotiate shared-use agreements, reduce the pro rata share fees and oversight charge, and to leverage the best agreement possible for your school. View presentation here.
