October 2, 2017 The California Department of Education (CDE) has a new application process for alternative schools within the new accountability system. Alternative schools of choice, charter schools serving high-risk students that had an ASAM application approved prior to July 1, 2016, and other schools seeking alternative school status must complete the Dashboard Alternative School Status (DASS) application process by October 6, 2017 to be considered an alternative school.

You can find more information on this process, including new eligibility criteria and application details, from the California Department of Education's letter.
