On September 4, 2012, the board passed a resolution establishing the San Diego Unified School District Charter School Facility Committee for the purpose of providing recommendations concerning acquisition, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of charter school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of charter school facilities. The Committee is to be comprised of seven members, including five charter school board members or employees, and two individuals with expertise, knowledge or background related to charter school operations/facilities.

Committee members were nominated by the Superintendent after consultation with the charter school community and appointed by the board to two-year terms. The first terms are to be staggered such that three members are initially appointed for one-year terms. To fulfill the requirement of staggered terms, staff conducted a lottery to determine which members would be appointed for one-year and two-year terms.
