What are the Sample Policies?
CSDC's Sample Charter School Governing Board Policies is a repository of the major policies California charter schools are required or otherwise ought to have in place.
CSDC's team of charter experts—who keep track of the latest charter legal and regulatory developments—continually update these policies, enabling your school to maintain compliance without having to track the myriad bills before the State Legislature or spend substantial amounts on legal fees.
Who has access to the Sample Policies?
CSDC's Sample Policies are available to personnel currently employed by CSDC Member schools.
To access the Policies, CSDC Members must have an account on this website. If you have a CSDC Member account but have forgotten your username or password, please click here. If you are unsure whether you have a CSDC Member account or need to create one, please contact us so we can create and affiliate your account with the correct CSDC Member school.
