Please note: California Education Code (EC) Section 33054 used to allow Charter Schools to submit a General Waiver request on their own behalf. However, effective January 7, 2007, that Section of the EC was repealed. This means that a Charter School can no longer submit a General Waiver request on its own behalf. Charter Schools must have their chartering district submit the waiver request for the Charter School. A Charter School may continue to directly submit only Federal Waivers for the Carl Perkins Act and a Specific Waiver of Instruction Time Penalties on their behalf.
