Charter Schools—A Three-Part Series

Local educational agencies must be aware of their obligations under current law and develop appropriate policies and procedures. Both charter schools and traditional school agencies need to be familiar with the processes, requirements, and timelines for charter school petition submittal and approval; as well as, ongoing operations and oversight.

Fiscal Aspects of Negotiations

As many districts struggle with time and budget constraints, School Services of California, Inc., (SSC) has made a commitment to provide some of its foundational workshops through various modes of delivery. SSC hopes to make these workshops more accessible and meet the varying needs of school districts across California. As such, the Fiscal Aspects of Negotiations workshop is now available in both a face-to-face format and as an online offering.
