Student/Family Handbooks

Charter schools typically adopt Student or Family Handbooks, which establish clear expectations for their students regarding a variety of matters.

Parent Policies

As a school leader, you may be trying to figure out how to engage parents and families in authentic, mutually beneficial ways at your school. This guidebook on family engagement, written by researchers from the University of Southern California's Center on Educational Governance, identifies strategies for how to involve families in meaningful and inclusive ways.

Charter schools also often adopt parental involvement policies, either separately or as part of the student and family handbook. Such policies primarily discuss schools' expectations for parent participation or volunteer hours.
