CCSA Answers: Credentials for Charter School Principals or School Directors?

  • Print

May 15, 2017 Question: Are charter school principals or school directors required to hold an Administrative Services or other credential?

Answer: No. Those sections of the Education Code are not applicable to charter schools under our Mega Waiver. Charter schools list key employee qualifications in their charter petition and in their employee/personnel handbooks and employee contracts.   However, that does not preclude charter schools from requiring their principals to hold a credential or other qualification criteria.
