The Laws Regarding Student Outreach, Admissions and Lottery Preferences

  • Print

May 11, 2012 Charter law in the area of student outreach and admissions is filled with complex and confusing statutory inconsistencies. The admissions process, especially regarding the application of preferences and the administration of public random drawings, can also be overwhelmingly daunting. In a workshop at the 19th MYM_Admissions_thumbnail.jpg (Feature: Small Thumbnail) Annual CA Charter Schools Conference, Lisa Corr and Paul Minney of Middleton, Young & Minney, LLP critically examined admissions and outreach requirements and offered viable solutions for meeting your charter school's goals while maintaining a lawful process. If you weren't there to participate in the workshop, don't worry--the session is now available to watch on demand on CCSA's YouTube channel!

This type of high-quality information is one of the hallmarks of CCSA's conference, which inspires academic excellence, operational integrity and unity among charter schools throughout California. The 20th Annual California Charter Schools Conference will be held March 11-14, 2013, in San Diego.
