There are two categories of partnership: Single Charter Partner and Organization Partner. A Single Charter Partner is a SELPA member with one school (single CDS code). An Organization Partner is defined as a non-profit with one governing board or an organization with one Chief Executive Officer position that is vested with comprehensive operating authority for two or more SELPA member schools (multiple CDS codes).
If you are interested in applying for the 2018-19 school year and are currently in operation, we advise providing notice of intent to withdrawal to your authorizer, current SELPA, and CDE. To avoid any difficulty, should you choose to join another SELPA, notice should be provided one year and one day in advance of the school year you intend to leave (i.e., June 30, 2018).
The importance of this communication is to ensure sufficient planning time for all involved. Our process will require evidence of timely communication. We recommend sending these letters by certified mail with return receipt.
