Charter school bill heads to governor

A bill from state Sen. Fran Pavley, D-Agoura Hills, that would impose restrictions on charter schools seeking to locate outside the boundaries of the districts that charter them, is headed for the governor’s desk, officials said Thursday.

Several Santa Clarita Valley school officials lobbied for Senate Bill 1263, saying it was necessary to close a loophole in state charter law that was being abused.

One district accused of such abuse was the Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District, which faces lawsuits alleging it improperly approved charter schools to operate outside its boundaries.

The bill has drawn some criticism. Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, blasted the bill in a statement, calling it a “full frontal assault on the Albert Einstein Academy,” a charter school that was approved by the Acton-Agua Dulce board.
