Access to Available SD Facilities

Maria Sazon

Throughout the country, access to unused and available district space is sparse even if traditional public school enrollment is declining. There are, however, a handful of school districts that have collaborative policies and practices in allocating these spaces to charter schools and should be models to others. This conference presentation describes what this year’s National Charter Schools Conference host city, Atlanta, has done to assist charter school operators with facilities access. Session panelists will also discussed advocacy guidelines and efforts to improve access to facilities in other cities.
