Under Proposition 39, Charter Schools that are located in the district, serving high school students residing in the ESUHSD boundaries and whose charters were approved by the East Side Union High School District Board of Trustees are eligible for the District’s Bond Measure proceeds. On March 24, 2011, the Board of Trustees approved a Measure E base allocation of $740 per one time maximum ADA for high school age District resident students attending charter schools (that met the criteria outlined above) for primarily technology and equipment procurement.
On June 27, 2013, the Board of Trustees, approved a Measure I Equity Distribution List that allocated Measure I funds to District approved charters to fulfill the Measure E commitments. Bond funds can only be used to improve District buildings and properties and/or to provide appropriate equipment and technology.
Although a charter school may serve East Side Union High School students, if the school’s charter was approved by the Santa Clara County Office of Education Board of Trustees, it is not eligible for ESUHSD bond funding.
Charter schools are responsible for providing a request for the funding and plan for the expenditures to the East Side Union High School District. The plans are presented to the Board of Trustees for approval. All technology and equipment procurement is done through the District.
For more information, please see a presentation provided by the District to the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee regarding Charter Schools and Bond Funding. This presentation was given at the Committee’s October 12, 2016 meeting.
