Prop 39 Applicants: Did Your District Provide a Preliminary Offer of Facilities?

  • Print

February 5, 2014 On February 1, districts were required to make preliminary offers of facilities to eligible charter schools. Have you received your preliminary offer?

If YES
Under the Prop. 39 regulations, a charter school must respond to the district's preliminary offer by March 1, expressing any concerns, addressing differences between the preliminary offer and the charter school's request, and making counter-offers, if any. CCSA has prepared a template letter for members to use in responding to a district's preliminary offer.

If NO
You should request a preliminary offer of facilities right away. CCSA recommends that you do so using the CCSA provided template.

We recommend that you work with your legal counsel in drafting your response to your district. Find templates and more resources here.
