October 18, 2013 Feasibility, Advanced Planning and Project Grant Applications Available
Charter School Facilities Planning and Project Applications are available for a first wave of planning grants and project grants. There will be a number of application deadlines so that projects can be evaluated, ranked and recommended for approval to the SDUSD Board of Education in stages. The first deadline for applications is October 31, 2013 at 5:00 pm

If you are unable to meet the October deadline, the committee approved January 10, 2014 as a second wave deadline for additional applications and projects.

Proposition Z - CSFC Vacancy Application
If you are interested in serving on the CSFC, there is a vacancy. The application and additional information about the vacancy is available on the CSFC website. Applications for this vacancy are due November 6, 2013.

Air Conditioning Projects
As you may be aware, the San Diego Unified School District Board approved the use of Proposition Z funds to air condition the hottest 2000 classrooms in the district. On Monday, October 14, 2013 the Proposition Z Committee approved the use of Proposition Z Charter School Funding to ensure that district charter schools were also included in this work and that charter schools will receive reasonably equivalent facilities on district property. Initial analysis indicates that 10 charter schools on district property have classrooms that would fall within the hottest 2000 classrooms and work will be completed to address these school's needs simultaneously with traditional district schools.

Next Proposition Z Meeting November 4, 2013
The agenda is posted on the CSFC website.

Please feel free to contact Miles Durfee, Managing Regional Director, Southern California, if you have comments or input on any of the agenda items.
