Reopening California's Schools: A Lozano Smith Discussion on Complying with the Civic Center Act

Posted by Sara Bachez on Aug 13, 2020 11:00:00 AM

The California Civic Center Act (Education Code Section 38130 et seq.) ensures that public schools, structures and facilities which are built with public dollars are accessible to the public for purposes beyond education and schooling.

As school districts adopt reopening plans in a virtual and/or in-person format, questions may arise from parent- and community-based organizations on their ability to use school facilities pursuant to the act.

To provide you with expert guidance on how to field facilities use requests as schools reopen, we’ve partnered with the attorneys at CASBO Premier Partner Lozano Smith to present this webinar in our summer series, in which we discussed:

  • Responding to requests to use school facilities,
  • Protocols and procedures you should consider updating due to the strict cleaning and social distancing required to combat the spread of COVID-19, and
  • Managing existing agreements and considerations of increased direct costs associated with COVID-19 requirements.
