A repository of customizable
policies for California
What are the Sample Policies?
CSDC's Charter School Governing Board Sample Policies is a repository of some of the policies California charter schools are required or otherwise ought to have in place.
CSDC’s team of charter experts created these policies so that California charter school leaders would have a starting point for the policy drafting and adoption process.
Who has access to the Sample Policies?
CSDC's Charter School Governing Board 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.
