General Oversight Visits
SLOCOE staff members are responsible for conducting regular oversight visits to provide support to the school and its students. These visits serve as an opportunity for collaboration with the school in various areas, including facilities, school safety, culture and climate, staffing, overall educational program, staff development, parental involvement, and matters related to the governing board. To ensure an authentic experience, charter school staff may or may not inform the school in advance of a general visit. In the event of any noteworthy concerns that arise during the visit, the SLOCOE staff will have a debriefing session with the school leader while still on-site.

Charter School Annual Oversight Checklist
The San Luis Obispo County Office of Education (SLOCOE) is responsible for overseeing the operations of charter schools authorized by the San Luis Obispo County Board of Education. This includes ensuring that these schools have appropriate educational programs, effective governance, and sound fiscal viability.
To assist both the local educational agencies (LEAs) and the charter schools they authorize, the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) has developed a Charter School Annual Oversight Checklist. This checklist serves as a tool to facilitate the annual oversight responsibilities of the LEAs and the charter schools. It helps users evaluate the operational effectiveness of an authorized charter school and identify areas where support may be needed.

The checklist is designed to provide an objective overview of the charter school’s operations. It outlines key issues that both the charter schools and the authorizers should consider. However, it’s important to note that the checklist is not meant to be an exhaustive list of all necessary operations and tasks. Instead, its purpose is to guide the assessment process and ensure that the charter schools are meeting the required standards and expectations. By utilizing this checklist, SLOCOE and other LEAs can effectively monitor and support charter schools, promoting their success and the overall quality of education in San Luis Obispo County.
