High School Program
The CCC partners with many educational providers. The strongest of these partnerships is with charter schools. National and state leaders have recognized that one size does not fit all when it comes to learning environments and methods of teaching our young people.
Charter school legislation has been approved in more than half the states to broaden public school choice for children and youth.
The Charter Schools Act of 1992 was enacted by the Legislature to provide opportunities for teachers, parents, students and community members to establish and maintain schools that operate independently from the existing school district structure. This was done as a method to improve student learning, encourage the use of different and innovative teaching methods, provide parents and students with expanded choices in the types of educational opportunities available within the public school system, as well as, to increase learning opportunities for all students, with special emphasis on expanded learning experiences for those identified as academically low achieving.
In addition, this new structure would help hold the schools established under this part accountable for meeting measurable outcomes, and provide the schools with a method to change from rule-based to performance-based accountability systems.
