Charter School – Chartering district must request General Waivers on your behalf:
California Education Code (EC) 33054 used to allow charter school 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 However, effective January 7, 2007, that section of the EC was repealed.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. The general waiver request is available for review and all data elements must be completed.
A charter school may continue to directly submit only federal waivers of the Carl Perkins Act and a Specific Waiver of Instruction Time Penalties.
