As the Charter School is being established to serve the needs of the students, the Board believes that it is imperative that they shall value the active involvement of families. We will encourage the participation of parents in Olive Grove Charter School’s Advisory Council, which will be established to facilitate communication between all members of the OGCS community and to help meet the goals and objectives of the Charter School.
California law does not require charter schools to establish school site advisory councils, however, OGCS believes that they can provide an important forum for bringing together parents, teachers and students, to hold structured dialogue about the educational program. OGCS will establish a school site advisory council to provide input in school planning, including development of the LCAP. Required school site advisory council composition shall include at least two parents, an EL parent representative, two staff members, and two students.
