MANAGING YOUR AUTHORIZER RELATIONSHIP & PREPARING FOR SUCCESSFUL ANNUAL OVERSIGHT
This is the second workshop of the series designed to equip school with best practices in establishing a positive working relationship with local authorizers focused on the students and communities you serve. A significant portion of this workshop will provide insight to establishing a system for the collection of quality evidence for use in oversight, and navigating difficult and unforeseen inquiries (ie. “notices”) from your authorizer which may jeopardize your good standing and upcoming charter renewal.
