A lesson in educational stakeholder authority: AUSD and chartered educational agreements
Many unknowingly consider by-laws the heartbeat of an organization. That is not true always. For Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC) their heart beat is the agreement between Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) and Community Learning Center Schools (CLCS). This “Charter” or Performance document does a lot. Specifically it creates governance policy which defines the legality of future educational stakeholder interactions.
Those seeking to guide ACLC’s future must ensure their authoritative rights are written into existence while the charter renewal application is ongoing. Focused attention should be given to “Element N.” – “Dispute Resolution Procedures.”
ACLC will be submitting their final charter renewal application to AUSD’s Ms. Lara soon. If you want to increase your authority, make an attempt to have your voice heard. Contact the ACLC Governing Board, the CLCS board of director’s, and the CLCS executive director with your input. ACLC is located at 1900 Third Street, Alameda, California 94501.
A copy of the next-to-final version of ACLC’s charter as of September 29, 2014 is provided at the link below. Page 74 starts the “Dispute Resolution Procedures.”
