– ACLU and Public Advocates
The LAUSD Charter School Division (CSD) says that “a review of charter school pre- and post-enrollment forms is part of our oversight process”.  It is, therefore, unclear how these regulators missed the fact that both Granada Hills Charter High School (GHCHS) and El Camino Real Charter High School (ECRCHS) have admission requirements that appear to violate LAUSD policy, their respective charters, the California Education Code and federal law. These organizations rely on public funds to operate but appear to be screening out students who should have a right to attend. Some examples of this cherry-picking are as follows:

Homeless Students:
The policies at ECRCHS are even more stringent as they require “three consecutive months of original current gas AND electric bills with the same parent name and address at the top of the bill” and “parent/guardian identification [that] must match proof of residential address“. More troublesome is the policy that states that “ECRCHS DOES NOT ACCEPT SHARED RESIDENCES OR ROOM RENTALS“. This violates the rights of students whose economic situation dictates that they must accept these types of living situations.
