The state has directed all school districts in Florida to keep schools closed through the end of the school year due to concerns over the coronavirus. More information is available on our Coronavirus Information page.
A charter school’s non-profit Board of Directors is responsible for ultimate school oversight, for responding to parent/guardian concerns and for the success of their school.
Florida Statutes 1002.33(9)(p)2 requires each school’s Board of Directors to appoint a Parent Representative to facilitate parent involvement, provide access to information, assist parents and others with questions and concerns, and resolve disputes. The representative must reside in the school district and may be a governing board member, a charter school employee, or an individual contracted to represent the governing board.
Each charter school has a published grievance process either on their website or in their Parent/Student Handbook. It is important that parents/guardians are aware of the process to follow to report a concern regarding their child or other concerns at the school.
