Charter School Association Sues LAUSD Over Co-location Policy

By |April 8th, 2024|

Last Tuesday, the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) filed a lawsuit against LAUSD for the district’s charter co-location policy. This policy potentially mediates or complicates the thorny implementation of Proposition 39 and the contested practice of co-location in resource-strapped communities.

If non-charter schools have unused space on their campus, they should share that space with a charter school. However critics of the implementation of Prop. 39 have argued that the law has been interpreted beyond the mandated “reasonably equivalent” accommodations of charter schools.
