Summary : The Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Charter School has submitted requests for approval of non-automatic waivers of state laws and/or regulations which relate to certain autonomies in the areas of board governance and human resources. These requests were reviewed by the DCSD Choice Programming Office and the School of Choice Office at Colorado’s Department of Education. Attachments 5 and 6 to the STEM Charter School Contract address automatic and non-automatic waivers of state laws. Approval by the Board of the non-automatic waivers submitted by STEM to the Board supports approval of replacing Attachment 6 to the STEM Charter School Contract so that the Contract is consistent with the approvals of the Board in this regard. Attachment 5 (automatic waivers) should also be replaced by the updated version submitted by STEM Charter School.
