    In general, I oppose expanding seats at charter schools as long as there is capacity open at district schools. I am having a hard time understanding how one school (Eres) that is part of one charter chain (Aspire) can make a commttment on behalf of another school (Epic MIddle) from another chain (EFC). I also wonder about the numbers: what is Epic's actual enrollment? What is the legal basis for OUSD's view of Eres current enrollment cap? If Eres finds that so different from its own understanding of its enrollment cap, why is it applying for a material revision?
