Human Resources & Employment

All employers, including charter schools, should have policies and practices that will guide them throughout the employer/employee relationship. It is important to note that all charter school employees must sign an oath of allegiance. This requirement is listed under the California Constitution, Article 20, Miscellaneous Subjects, Section 3.

Charter schools are exempt from many of the Education Code requirements. For example, the Education Code does not require charter schools to comply with the same statutes and regulations governing teacher tenure and merit that apply to traditional public school employers. Through the terms of its charter, a charter school may choose to adopt or opt out of the statutes and regulations governing discipline and dismissal in public school employment. However, this flexibility does not extend to matters included in the California Constitution.
