Material Revision

    During the term of its charter, a charter school may determine that it is necessary or desirable to seek an amendment of its current approved charter.  The District must approve any proposed change to the provisions of a charter before the change can be implemented.  While some proposed changes to a charter may be deemed non-material and, therefore, can be handled administratively by the Charter Schools Division (CSD), any amendment that would constitute a "material revision" of the charter must be approved by the governing board of the charter school and the LAUSD Board of Education in accordance with California Education Code §47607(a)(1).  Material revisions are governed by the same standards and criteria that apply to new petitions (Cal. Ed. Code §47607(a)(2)).
