Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Under current law, there are no specific restrictions regarding how a district must treat a charter or private school in the bidding process. 


This law specifies that if a school district is selling or leasing a vacant or unused building, they are prohibited from accepting an offer from a potential buyer or lessee that is less than an offer from a charter or private school. School districts are also prohibited from withdrawing the property from sale solely because a charter or private school is the highest bidder.
