Charter School Renewal

​​​Per Education Code section 47607.4, effective July 1, 2021, all charter schools whose term expires on or between January 1, 2022, and June 30, 2025, inclusive, shall have their term extended by two years. ​​​​

The Orange County Board of Education may grant one or more subsequent renewals to a charter school pursuant to Education Code section 47607 and 47607.2.

The California Department of Education annually publishes a data file​ that provides the performance categories for all non-DASS charter schools to be used for charter school renewal.  ​

Orange County Department of Education Charter Schools Unit staff facilitate the charter school petition sub​mission​ pro​cess, conduct petition rev​iew, and provide recommendations, including recommended findings, to the Orange County Board of Education.
