An Analysis of the Charter School Facility Landscape in California
The National Charter School Resource Center (“Resource Center”), the Colorado League of Charter Schools (“League”), the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (Alliance) and the California Charter Schools Association (“CCSA”), publish this report, entitled “An Analysis of the Charter School Facility Landscape in California,” detailing the status of charter school facilities in the state.
In the spring of 2014, the above organizations worked to collect evidence about charter school facilities and facilities expenditures in the state of California. The data collection in California was supported by the Charter School Facilities Initiative (CSFI); a national project developed by the League to research charter school facilities and facilities funding across the country. Since 2011, the League’s work, through the CSFI, has been supported by the U.S. Department of Education’s Charter Schools Program through a subcontract with the Resource Center.
The League worked closely with CCSA to collect data from California’s charter schools for use in this report.
