  • Print

November 15, 2013 The California Department of Education is launching a new project to strengthen charter schools across the state by providing teachers and administrators access to hundreds of online resources to aid their work, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today.

The Charter Schools Best Practices Project has information to assist in planning and starting charter schools; evaluating charter school petitions; developing partnerships with other schools and local districts; and increasing student achievement in the classroom. Two charter school-related groups have been created for educators to share ideas.

It includes more than 700 online resources linking users to best practices and profiles of successful charter schools. The information is collected from the National Charter Schools Resource Center, which serves as a clearinghouse of high-quality resources on charter schools nationwide.

As part of this Best Practices Project, the California Department of Education is also offering a free training session in Los Angeles County and throughout California, where educators can learn strategies for connecting to partners across the state to find the information and resources they need. Attendees must pre-register for each of the events through the link provided below.
