Lisa A. Corr


SACRAMENTO OFFICE | 916.646.1400 Ext. 226

Lisa Corr has represented charter schools for over twenty-five years. Her primary focus has been in special education and the representation of charter schools in due process matters and in defense of Office for Civil Rights and California Department of Education complaints. Lisa also assists charter schools in day-to-day special education compliance and negotiating agreements with special education providers and authorizers.

Lisa’s legal representation also focuses on the developmental phase of charter schools, including assisting charter developers through the development of legally compliant charter petitions, successfully managing the charter authorization process, and negotiating legal and fiscal agreements between charter schools and authorizers. Lisa assists charter school boards in developing effective and efficient governance practices, including assistance with strategic planning, legal compliance, and policy development. One of Lisa’s unique practice areas is non-classroom-based (independent study) charter school legal compliance.

Lisa has studied the often complicated intersection of independent study law and charter school law throughout the evolution of the Charter Schools Act, assisting charter schools in understanding both the technical legal rules and the best practices for implementation. Lisa also assists charter schools in the development and implementation of admissions policies and practices. Lastly, Lisa assists in general student services issues (e.g. student discipline, interpretation of child-custody agreements, and control of disruptive visitors on campus).
