(Agreement on AB 1505)…The agreement was announced by Governor Gavin Newsom and other legislators.

The Assembly Bill is legislation that significantly reforms the Charter Schools Act to address long standing challenges for both school districts and charter schools. The Governor said the agreement focuses on the needs of the students. He said it increases accountability for all charter schools, allows high-quality charter schools to thrive, and ensures that the fiscal and community impacts of charter schools on school districts are carefully considered. Newsom said they were grateful that leaders on both sides of the conversation worked hard to reach the agreement, as it is a foundation to continuing to work in the interests of all California Students.
