Charter Currents: Budget Bill Extends Most Charter Terms Two Years

July 16, 2021

On Monday, amongst hundreds of pages of budget trailer bill provisions, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law a requirement to extend most charter school petition terms by two years. The extensions apply to all charters that would otherwise expire on or between January 1, 2022 and June 30, 2025. Many charter schools may welcome this news, but each school should carefully evaluate implications for their renewal prospects.
