Orange County Register-
Four charter schools, including one in Huntington Beach and another with a campus in San Bernardino, are suing the California Department of Education and state leaders over a funding formula they say cuts them off from essential state money.
The four charters are among a number of schools in California that face financial problems because of what they claim is an unfair formula recently established by the state. Specifically, the schools expect their fall enrollment to exceed what they had in February, yet the state is allocating school funding for the upcoming year based on the February 2020 enrollment numbers.
Last month, the dispute prompted the four schools to file a lawsuit, in Sacramento, naming Gov. Gavin Newsom and State Superintendent Tony Thurmond as defendants.
