Effective September 1, 2016, the New York State Department of Health (DOH) announced that schools are subject to new immunization requirements. Charter schools are required to comply with these requirements and should refer to the DOH’s new 2017-18 guide on required immunizations (https://www.health.ny.gov/publications/2370.pdf).
Examples of student discipline codes, including those from the panel discussion “Student Discipline and School Culture” held at the Charter Center in October 2015.
Charter school parents do not have access to the DOE parent portal ARIS to view their child’s standardized test score results like parents with children in district schools do. The responsibility of communicating these standardized test score results, such as those from the state grades 3-8 ELA and Math exam, lies solely with the charter school. Most charter schools send out a letter to parents in the late summer or early fall following exam administration with test score information.
