Model School Code on Education and Dignity

Section 2.1 on Stakeholder Participation identifies students, parents or guardians, community members, teachers, school staff, administrators and all other members of the school community as stakeholders with a right to participate in education at the school, district and state levels. It describes procedures for establishing an advisory committee to design effective processes for stakeholder participation, informing stakeholders of their rights, identifying areas of decision-making requiring stakeholder participation, building the capacity of stakeholders to be informed decision-makers, and monitoring the process of stakeholder participation. The section also specifies how to uphold stakeholder participation in Charter Schools by identifying particular areas of charter school governance where states, districts, charter management organizations and charter schools must support the full participation of all stakeholders.
