Charter schools are nonsectarian public schools of choice that operate with freedom from many of the regulations that apply to traditional public schools. This handbook provides the vital information a director needs to understand in order to operate a charter school including: * Initiating and responding to change * Preparing the organization to implement change * Support for instruction and learning * Assessment and evaluation * School law, policies, and politics People establish charter schools for a variety of reasons-to realize an educational vision, to gain autonomy, or to serve a particular population. This book offers guidance to all who are considering the charter school model especially parents and teachers, school districts, community-based organizations (CBOs), teachers, administrators, families, students, and other key stakeholders such as businesses.

William Callison, is professor of Educational Leadership at California State University at Fullerton. He has been deeply involved in the creation of a new charter school in Orange County, California, which will utilize multiple intelligences, developed by Howard Gardner, and All Kinds of Minds, developed by Mel Levine. He has also been involved in the creation of alternative programs such as Project Upward Bound, a national program for potential dropouts started in 1965, as the Western Regional Director; as the Director of Head Start Supplementary Training, an alternative staff training effort involving scores of small staff and parent groups in every state; and in supervising dozens of school administrators every year for 27 years as they sought to create new programs and schools, including a number of alternative schools.
