  • Beyond the 4 responsibilities of a school board,
    everything else is the Superintendents
    responsibility
  • Therefore, it is the Superintendents authority
    that is shared with schools in a charter system
    or a system of charter schools
  • The authority of a local Board of Education is
    not diminished unless it has inappropriately
    taken the Superintendents authority

Charter System School Governing Team Autonomy
  • Indicators of Autonomy
  • Must make personnel decisions (People)
  • Must make decisions about what happens in the
    school (Time)
  • Must set school budget spending priorities
    (Money)
  • Must recruit/select governing board members
    without district assistance (except for initial
    group)
  • Can contract for services provided by the
    district

The school should be as close to this end as
possible

24
College and Career Academies
  • Since charter system schools are charter schools,
    and
  • Since College and Career Academies must be
    charter schools,
  • Many charter systems create new College and
    Career Academies through their charter system
    contract rather than through a separate charter
    application process for the College and Career
    Academy

25
Career Clusters/Pathways
  • College and Career Academies are increasingly
    being created to better provide for Career
    Clusters/ Pathways
  • We have 17 Career Clusters -- all designed with
    the help of Georgia businesses.
  • Each Cluster has multiple Pathways students can
    choose
  • Students take core set of classes coupled with
    electives based on their pathway

Flexibility Orientation
  • Local Boards of Education make a significant
    legal commitment when they sign a charter system
    or IE2 contract.
  • It is therefore critical that both new Board of
    Education members and new Superintendents receive
    a detailed orientation on their charter system or
    IE2 commitments as part of their on-boarding
    process
