Class Action Lawsuit
Leaders from The Classical Academies, Springs Charter Schools and The Learning Choice Academy are joining a coalition challenging SB-98 and SB-820—California’s new state funding laws which do not provide funding for all growing public schools. Combined, schools represented in the lawsuit have welcomed over 2,000 unfunded new students representing $20.9 million in withheld state funding. These school systems represent a small portion of the 310 non-classroom based schools in California—many of which are growing this year. In California, a school is considered non-classroom based if more than 20 percent of learning happens off campus. Such schools provide families with a range of options from fully virtual to a hybrid of on-campus and at-home learning all done with the support of teachers.
