Keeping Parents Informed: Charter Transparency

Value Schools is a charter management organization operating four charter schools governed by a nonprofit board of directors and overseen by the Los Angeles Unified School District. On January 12, 2016, the LAUSD board voted to approve a Board Resolution, “Keeping Parents Informed : Charter Transparency” which was passed with the support of the L.A. charter community. The resolution suggested types of information and data that would increase the transparency of charter school operations so that parents could be better informed. These include charter petitions, School Accountability Report Cards, Local Education Agency Plans, Local Control Accountability Plans, Annual Audits, and other publicly available documents.

This information is available from Value Schools electronically or on paper by parent request. Parents may request this information in English and any single primary language meeting the requirements of Sections 45400 through 45403 of the California Education Code. Please submit requests for information to Rhonda Hoffarth, Value Schools CFO, at rhoffarth@valueschools.com or make the request in person at 680 Wilshire Place, Suite 301, Los Angeles CA 90005, or via phone at (213) 388-8676.
