Action Alert: Oppose Senate Bill 1263 (Pavley)

Stand up for California's charter schools and make your voice heard today!

Senate Bill 1263 (Pavley) will be heard on the Senate Floor next week.  This bill will create new and oppressive facilities barriers for charter schools by no longer allowing charter schools to locate outside of their district in instances where they are unable to locate an acceptable in-district facility.

This exception has provided a valuable backstop for charter schools with difficult or unique facilities challenges within their district of authorization. By completely removing this exception, SB 1263 will eliminate critical flexibility that charter schools currently utilize to overcome facilities challenges.

We urge you to take action now and contact your senator to express your opposition to SB 1263 today to ensure this bill does not move forward.
