Don't Forget to Respond to School District ADA Projection Letters by January 2, 2018!
December 18, 2017 On or before December 1, school districts were required to respond to charter school Prop. 39 ADA projections included in Prop 39 requests that were due on or before November 1. Has your district responded to your ADA projections?
If YES - CCSA has prepared template letters for members to use in responding to the district's December 1 ADA letters. The templates are available on our website. http://www.calcharters.org/2010/09/proposition-39-resources-and-templates.html.
Under Prop. 39 regulations, a charter school must respond to the district's objections by either reaffirming or modifying the charter school's previous projections, as necessary to respond to those concerns. If your school fails to respond to the district by January 2, 2018, then the district's ADA projections provided in its December 1 letter are no longer subject to challenge. In an abundance of caution, schools may consider inquiring as to when their district closes for the holidays, and submit their response prior to any closure.
We recommend responding to the district's December 1 letter even if your district accepted your ADA projections. We suggest using your response as an opportunity to confirm that the district's facilities offer will be based on your ADA projections. We also provide a template for this correspondence on our website at http://www.calcharters.org/2010/09/proposition-39-resources-and-templates.html.
If NO - Your ADA projections are no longer subject to challenge, and the district's facilities offer must be based on your ADA projections. CCSA recommends that you follow up with a letter confirming that the facilities offer will be based on your ADA projections. This template is also available on our website at http://www.calcharters.org/2010/09/proposition-39-resources-and-templates.html.
