Charter Schools

The development and growth of charter schools has added new and often complex wrinkles into school districts’ operations, oversight and legal obligations. AALRR has made it a point to stay on top of developments in this segment of education and assist school districts in matters involving charter school operations.

We regularly advise districts in responding to Proposition 39 facility requests by charter schools. We also handle all matters regarding the organization and operation of charter schools, including:

  • Charter school petition review, analysis and revocation
  • CDE Compliance Complaints
  • Oversight issues
  • Special Education and due process
  • Charter school policy development
  • Section 504
  • Student investigations and discipline

As respected leaders in education-related legal matters, our charter school attorneys are frequently invited to speak to educational associations on charter issues for both public school districts and charter school operators.
