Keeping Parents Informed: Charter Transparency 2016-17
Equitas Academy, Equitas Academy 2, Equitas Academy 3, Equitas Academy 4, and Equitas Academy 5 are charter public schools governed by the nonprofit board of directors of “Equitas Academy Charter School, Inc.,” a nonprofit public benefit corporation registered within the State of California, and overseen by the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The Equitas Academy Board of Directors is a committed group of professionals that have come together because of their desire to provide choice and quality in education to the families of Los Angeles and their fierce commitment to closing the achievement gap. Access to board meeting agendas/minutes are available here.
On January 12, 2016, the LAUSD board voted to approve a Board Resolution, “Keeping Parents Information: Charter Transparency” which was passed with the support of the LA charter community. The resolution highlighted commonly requested information and data that charter public schools share with parents through their charter petitions, School Accountability Report Cards, Local Education Agency Plans, Local Control Accountability Plans, Annual Audits, and other publicly available documents.
This commonly requested information is available from Equitas Academy electronically or manually by parent request. Per board resolution, 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 parent requests for translated information to the school’s main office.
