Earlier in 2021, the Charter School Facility Center published State Policy Analysis: Charter School and District Bond Offerings Charter Schools to understand the landscape of bond participations. This spurred interest in learning more about the details of these types of transactions. The Facility Center contacted Nicolas Watson of the California Charter Schools Association to provide insight into the experience of charter schools in California. There are numerous examples of charters working with local school districts.
The result of this research is the second report in a series exploring charter school inclusion in district bonds. This collection of case studies highlights the lessons learned from select school districts. These examples can provide a roadmap for other states to pursue a culture of state and district support for charter school facilities.
