We are in the process of rearranging archived meeting materials by topic (coming soon - early 2016).

Charter School Directors Meeting

Charter School Directors meetings are designed to disseminate information and update charter school leaders  on legislation, USOE practices and procedures, and various topics to help school leaders. Meetings are typically held the second Monday of every month with meetings in even numbered months being held in person and meetings in odd numbered months being held online.  In order to allow leaders and other interested staff to attend remotely we make every attempt to have it available online.

Attendees often mention the value of meeting in person and the amount they gain by networking with others.  We understand with time conflicts, travel and budget constraints’ attending is sometimes not a viable option, we hope this provides a suitable alternate solution in those circumstances.

The meeting agenda and associated documents are available online by clicking on the Current Meeting Materials date above. Please review the agenda for any time and location updates.
