Commonwealth Court hands major victory to charter schools

Latsha Davis & McKenna, P.C. is pleased to announce a victory on behalf of charter schools. In 2010 the School Reform Commission moved to cap enrollment in and payments to city charter schools that had agreed to limits, but it declined to do so under new charters. Various charter schools which Latsha Davis & McKenna represented joined in a suit claiming the caps were illegal. On August 27, 2015, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania ruled that the Philadelphia School District does not have the power to override state law and limit charter-school enrollment.

Furthermore, charter schools that do not agree to enrollment caps cannot be barred from asking the state to pay for additional students if the district refuses.
