What questions should a parent ask a charter school representative before choosing to send their child to that school?
All charter schools are different, even if they use the same curriculum. Ask questions about the school’s educational program, leadership (governing board and administration), faculty, and policies. Most schools will provide a Parent/Student Handbook, which includes general information. As you learn more about specific charter schools, keep in mind your particular child. What type of educational approach best suits your child’s needs? Think about what you are looking for in a school (geographical proximity, a specific curriculum, or a particular focus). An additional resource for information on specific charter schools is available at http://www.cde.state.co.us/scripts/chartersearch.asp. In addition, be sure to review the “School Accountability Report” of the schools that are of interest to you http://reportcard.cde.state.co.us/reportcard/CommandHandler.jsp.
