CCSA Answers: Fire Drill Requirements for Charter Schools

  • Print

June 26, 2017 Question: Do the requirements outlined in Education Code 32001, related to fire drills, apply to charter schools?

Answer: This can vary depending upon the charter school's location and legal circumstances. Charter schools are exempt from the school district requirements outlined in Education Code 32001 under our Mega Waiver. However, charter schools must comply with local fire marshal codes and are subject to all inspections and fire marshal requirements. If the charter school is co-located on district property, then they must follow the district/Education Code 32001 requirements.
