Rights and Responsibilities as a Charter School
Pursuant to O.C.G.A. §20-2-2065 and Georgia State Board of Education Rule 1 60-4-9.04, the Charter School shall be waived from state and local rule regulations, policies and procedures and/or provisions of Title 20 of the Official Code of Georgia, other than the provisions of the Charter School Act of 1998. The charter school shall not be subject to the provisions of this title or any state or local rule, regulation, policy, or procedure relating to schools within an applicable school system regardless of whether such rule, regulations, policy, or procedure is established by the local board, the state board, or the Department of Education. 

 

In exchange for such a waiver, the charter school agrees to meet or exceed the performance based goals included in the charter and approved by the local board and will comply with all the requirements of the single statewide accountability system.
