Question: Where in the Education Code does it state that charter schools must open by September 30 in order to receive state funding for ADA?

Answer: The Education Code in question is 47652 (c) which states, "A charter school in its first year of operation may only commence instruction within the first three months of the fiscal year beginning July 1 of that year. A charter school shall not be eligible for an apportionment pursuant to subdivision (a), or any other apportionment for a fiscal year in which instruction commenced after September 30 of that fiscal year."
