Abstract: The Legislature mandated the California Research Bureau (CRB) explore known best practices for charter school authorizers and survey California authorizers about their practices and costs. Additionally, the Legislature mandated CRB provide an analysis of current reimbursement for charter school oversight and include suggestions for improving oversight in California (SB537 (Simitian), Ch. 650, Stats. of 2007). This "Briefly Stated " summarizes CRB s findings. Key findings include: (1) The authorization process lacks transparency; (2) Authorizers differ in both their over-sight activities and the reported costs incurred for these activities; and (3) Most authorizers do not account for staff time or oversight costs. CRB was asked to provide recommendations for improving charter school oversight. It has four key recommendations: (1) Increase charter school transparency; (2) Determine what oversight activities the state should pay for; (3) Require accounting for Education Code section 47613 funds; and (4) Encourage the use of multiple metrics. (Contains 3 figures.) [For the full report, "California Charter Oversight: Key Elements and Actual Costs. CRB 12-001, " see ED528991.]
