Assembly Bill No. 2011

Introduced by Assembly Member Kiley

February 01, 2018

An act to add Section 47612.7 to the Education Code, relating to charter schools.


AB 2011, as introduced, Kiley. Charter schools: facilities used for fulfilling state educational mandates: geographical restrictions.
Existing law generally requires a charter school to operate within the geographic boundaries of the school district that authorized its charter, unless otherwise specified.
This bill would exempt a charter school facility from the geographical restrictions that would otherwise apply if all of the pupils attending the charter school attend through nonclassroom-based instruction and the facility is used for purposes of fulfilling state educational mandates, as specified.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 47612.7 is added to the Education Code, to read:

 Notwithstanding any other law, a charter school in which all pupils attend the charter school through nonclassroom-based instruction shall not be subject to the geographical restrictions specified in Section 47605 and 47605.1 for a charter school facility used for the purpose of fulfilling state educational mandates, including, but not limited to, administering academic assessments and state-mandated tests, delivering special education and related services and assessments to individuals with exceptional needs, as defined in Section 56026, English language development programs, and for conducting laboratory science courses required for graduation or fulfilling A–G course requirements for admission to the University of California and the California State University.
