Dear Charter School Friends,

 

You’ve probably heard about the “Elimination of Charter Schools” initiative. A small, anti-charter group is hoping to gather more than 360,000 signatures to put this initiative on the ballot in November, with the goal of closing every charter school in California.

While we don’t believe this effort will succeed, especially given the tremendous support for charters and surging numbers of students on charter school wait lists across the state, we do think it’s a great opportunity for you to speak out and let your elected officials know that no one should try to take away students’ right to a great public education.

Please take one minute to sign this petition. All you need to do is declare your support for charter schools and urge public officials to protect them.

Thank you for your advocacy on behalf of the California charter school community.

Dear LEA CAASPP Coordinators:

 

The Parent and Guardian Notification Letter templates for statewide assessments have been revised for 2015–16 and are now posted on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System Web page under the Coordinator/Administrators’ tab.

 

The following notification letters may be used by local educational agencies (LEAs) to inform parents of the 2015–16 statewide assessments. These letters fulfill the LEAs obligation each year to notify parents or guardians of their child’s participation in the CAASPP pursuant to the California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 5, Section 852(a). Please note that these templates do not address Education Code Section 60615 and 5 CCR Section 852(b), under which parents may excuse their child from any or all parts of the assessment by submitting an exemption request, in writing, to the school. LEAs may choose to add language to these templates to inform parents of this option, or they may elect other channels to communicate this information.

 

The following four letters are provided for students in:

 

·         Grades three through eight taking the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics with an optional section for students in grades five and eight, who will take either the California Standards Test (CST) for science or California Modified Assessment (CMA) for science

 

·         Grade eleven taking the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment for ELA and mathematics and information about the Early Assessment Program

 

·         Grade ten taking the CST for science or CMA for science and information about the grade eleven Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments

 

·         Grades three through eight and eleven taking the California Alternate Assessents (CAAs) for ELA and mathematics with an optional section for students in grades five, eight, and ten who will take the California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA) for science

 

If you have questions regarding these Parent and Guardian Notification Letter templates, please contact the CAASPP Office by phone at 916-445-8765 or by e-mail at caaspp@cde.ca.gov.

MORGAN HILL CONCERNED PARENTS ASSN. V. CAL. DEPT. OF ED
NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE OF STUDENT RECORDS
FERPA NOTICE AND OBJECTION FORM

Many of you may have already heard that two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Education ("CDE") alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local educational agencies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ("IDEA") and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act ("Section 504"). The suit also alleges that the CDE fails to monitor, investigate, and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law.

As part of the litigation discovery process, the plaintiffs, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, have requested numerous documents as well as student data collected and stored by the CDE. Many of the requested documents and data stored in the CDE databases contain personally identifiable information ("PII") of children, including children with disabilities, children who requested an assessment or who were assessed for special education eligibility, and children who are attending or who have attended a California school at any time since January 1, 2008. Although the CDE has contested the production of such information, the court at this juncture has ordered the CDE to produce to plaintiffs' legal counsel documents and data that contain student PII. Included in the court's order to produce documents and data is a Protective Order prohibiting the plaintiffs and their legal counsel from disclosing confidential information acquired in the course of the lawsuit, including PII, to anyone other than the parties, their attorneys and consultants, and the court. None of this information may be used outside the context of this lawsuit; no student's identifying records will be disclosed to the public.

As you may know, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA") sets out the requirements for the protection of privacy of parents and students, including privacy of student records. Generally, parents and/or students must provide written consent before an educational agency may disclose PII. However, there are exceptions to this general rule. Specifically, an educational agency must provide PII when ordered by a court, which the CDE has been ordered to do in this litigation. The CDE is obligated to inform the parent or student that the court has ordered it to produce documents and/or data that includes those individuals' PII and that such persons may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure. To that end, and to comply with FERPA, the CDE is requesting LEAs and SELPAs post the following link to CDE's Web site, http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase, from February 1, 2016, through April 1, 2016. The link provides the Notice and Objection Form required by FERPA.​

Any charter school wishing to cooperate with the CDE's request may post the following to its website through April 1, 2016 and consider a notice home to parents:

The California Department of Education ("CDE") has requested that local educational agencies throughout the State post the following link to CDE's website http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcaseto provide parents notice of the disclosure of student records pursuant to a Court Order issued in a lawsuit filed by the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association against the CDE. (Case No. 2:11-cv-3471-KJM-AC).  The CDE website provides aNotice for your review and an Objection Form should you wish to object to the disclosure of your child's personally identifiable information.

If you have any questions please visit CDE's website at http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase or contact CDE at (916) 319-0800.

It is important to note, however, that only CDE has been named as a defended in this case, and therefore only CDE is required to comply with the Court Order.  No charter school is required to disclose any information directly to the court nor to the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association or the Concerned Parents Association or otherwise acquire consent to release information. If you have any questions about the notice to parents or the court order, please feel free to contact Lisa Corr at 916-646-1400 orlcorr@mycharterlaw.com.
