CCSA Answers: Parent Conferences

  • Print

November 14, 2015 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 submitting assignments) (Education Code Section 51747). Appointments should be set on an individualized basis according to each student's needs. More information: Independent Study Operations Manual 8-12.
