Curriculum and Special Programs

One key benefit of starting a charter school is the ability to develop curriculum that addresses state standards in a creative, yet effective, way. This can extend beyond the school day into after school time, and preschool programs. This section provides information on A-G requirements and the University of California course approval procedures, as well as tips for starting and funding an after school or preschool program.
