Update: West Contra Costa Unified School District Lawsuit
March 12, 2015 On March 6, 2015, the trial court issued a ruling in favor of CCSA in its lawsuit against West Contra Costa Unified School District finding that CCSA's complaint states a case that can proceed to trial. This important lawsuit filed by CCSA seeks an equitable share of parcel taxes for charter schools. The trial court's ruling was in response to a demurrer that the District filed to challenge CCSA's amended complaint. We will continue to provide updates as the case proceeds.
CCSA filed a lawsuit on May 6, 2014 in the Contra Costa County Superior Court alleging that the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) failed to provide students attending charter public schools in the district with voter approved funding under Measure G. Passed by 75% of voters in November 2012, Measure G is a parcel tax measure that maintains quality education for students in WCCUSD through local funding.
