How do we know if our school has all the policies it needs? How can we make sure our current policies are up-to-date? Where can we get help with new policy requirements? …these are among the many questions that Charter School Partners has heard from our Partner Schools about the challenges of adopting and maintaining board-approved policies.
In response to these questions and concerns, CSP, through a partnership with Lavorato Law Office LLC, is pleased to offer schools access to a new governance resource, the “Essential Policies for Operation of a Minnesota Charter School.” For further details, please see the note below from Cindy Lavorato, a top legal expert on Minnesota’s Charter School Law and a former Assistant Attorney General and MDE Assistant Commissioner. If you have questions, please contact Morgan Brown, CSP’s Director of School Relations & Governance, at email@example.com or 952-297-6791.
Dear CSP Partner Schools,
There are now almost 100 policies that could be “essential” to the operation of your charter school. Knowing that the laws applicable to charter schools often differ significantly from those for district schools, I have worked over several years to compile a manual that addresses the unique needs of charter schools and charter school boards. An index of the policies contained in this manual is linked here.
Through an agreement with Charter School Partners, I’m pleased to offer the policy manual to Partner Schools at a discounted rate of $850, a savings of 15% from the regular price of $1,000. I will be updating the manual annually so that your school can stay in compliance with the ever-changing field of charter school law. The annual price for subscribing to the update service will be $400 for schools that have purchased the policy manual.
If you would like to purchase the policy manual or have questions about specific policies listed in the index, please contact me at (612) 868-9414 or Cindy@edlaw.co to discuss your needs. I look forward to working with you to provide this important resource!
