UPDATED: LAUSD Charter Operated Program Application Deadline Feb. 3
January 11, 2017 UPDATED DEADLINE: LAUSD charter schools have several options for special education service provision, with the most autonomous option being Option 3 in the Charter Operated Program (COP). Schools participating in Option 3 function in an LEA-like role, which means that each charter school has access to a proportionate share of special education funding and will assume full responsibility for providing a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to students.
LAUSD charter schools interested in being considered for a membership in Option 3 for the 2017-2018 school year must apply by Thursday, February 3, 2017. A copy of the application and instructions can be found here.
CCSA members are encouraged to reach out to CCSA's special education team at email@example.com if they have questions or concerns about the COP application process.
