CCSA's new Facilities Initiative Survey aims to collect data to develop an analysis of the issues and challenges facing California's charter schools and their access to affordable, adequate facilities. Throughout the state, a large number of charters continue to struggle in acquiring and financing adequate school facilities. The objective of the survey is to gather concise data about charter school facilities to foster a policy environment that improves support for the diverse facilities needs of charter schools across the state.

A team of facilities and finance experts have developed a questionnaire as part of a national and statewide effort to learn about and address facilities inequities. The online questionnaire takes between 35 minutes to 1 hour to complete. We expect to use data from this survey to further hone our advocacy strategies, provide data to support our advocacy efforts, and improve the outcomes of our efforts to reform SB 740, Prop 39, and California State Charter School Facilities Program (Prop 47, 55, 1-D).

Hard data is much more effective than anecdotal data when it comes to convincing law makers to provide charter schools with equitable access to facilities. As such, we need ALL charter schools in California to participate in this important survey so that we can enter the next legislative session armed with powerful evidence to show that public charter school students are not receiving access to the facilities they deserve in order to receive the best education possible.

The final deadline to complete the survey is Friday, December 14. So make sure you respond to the email to complete the online questionnaire. Please contact the Project Manager, Dion Jackson directly for more information at (213) 244-1446 ext. 242 or
