CCSA Answers: Parent Conferences
November 2, 2012
Question: Our charter school is a home study/independent studies school. Our contract states that we will hold "regularly scheduled conferences." How often are we required to hold conferences? Is there a law that governs this?
Answer: The requirements are for planned and scheduled reporting on the student's progress, and for contact as specified in the agreement (time, manner, frequency, and place for submit-ting assignments) (Education Code Section 51747). Appointments should be set on an individualized basis according to each student's needs.
