Winning Back Charters
After about half of the district’s charter schools decided to get special education services elsewhere, San Diego Unified has begun looking at a new plan to bring those schools back into its fold.
How Do They Do That?
Currently, the district charges charter schools a hefty fee for special education services, and it’s looking at options to charge a much lower fee, for passing on government funding directly to schools.
What’s the Point?
The district would charge charter schools a small fee for administering their special education programs, bringing much-needed revenue into the district’s coffers, and schools might see their funding boosted by the relationship too.
