Charter School Oversight: The Need for Reform in Charter School Finances and Governance
Jan 24, 2018
ACSA Superintendent’s Symposium
Charter authorizers throughout the State have recently been forced to take action against charter schools in light of allegations of fiscal improprieties. What do the current laws provide with respect to the application to charter school operators of laws intended to protect public education funds and open governance, such as conflict of interest statutes and other transparency laws? This session will review common charter school financial practices, and highlight where reform is needed in current laws to better protect public education funding.
