With uncommon speed, the California Assembly on Thursday followed the lead of the Senate a week ago, passing a bill imposing more disclosure and public access requirements on California’s 1,300-plus charter schools. Senate Bill 126, which the Assembly adopted with a 63-to-9 vote, will now head to Gov. Gavin Newsom, whose staff guided negotiations that led to its quick approval.

The bill will require charter schools to follow the same laws governing open meetings, public records and conflicts of interest that apply to school districts. They include ensuring board meetings are open to the public, providing records to the public upon request and, to prevent personal gain, banning board members from voting on contracts in which they have a financial interest.  For the entire article please click on the link below:
