District Not Required To Locate Charter School At Its Preferred Location

In Los Angeles International Charter High School v. Los Angeles Unified School District (--- Cal.Rptr.3d ----, Cal.App. 2 Dist., October 11, 2012), a California Court of Appeal considered the challenge by a charter school to a school district’s decision to provide facilities at a site other than the Charter’s preferred location. The appellate court ruled that Proposition 39 requires only that school districts make “reasonable efforts” to place charter schools “near” their desired location but does not require districts to provide charter schools with the specific requested location.
