  • Material Revisions for Authorized Charter Schools

    Material revisions for authorized charter schools are governed by the charter school's Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) approved by the Alameda County Board of Education (ACBOE) and charter school. Each charter school's MOU outlines requirements for material revisions. Authorized charter schools shall refer to Section 23: Material Revisions to Charter of their MOU to determine the need for a material revision request.

    ​​​​At the charter school's request, the ACBOE may authorize material revisions to the original charter petition. Prior to submission to the ACBOE for determination, the Alameda County Office of Education (ACOE) staff receive and review the material revision submissions from ACBOE authorized charter schools. Charter schools should consult with ACOE staff regarding any proposed changes.
