TPCA Policy Index


Twin Peaks Charter Academy policies provide governance for the operation of the school. TPCA follows policies adopted by the St. Vrain Valley School District except as noted below in cases where: (a) policies are determined by the district to not be applicable to our school; and (b) policies for which our school has been granted a specific waiver or waivers. The rationale for a waiver is usually to address a specific charter school operation.

All policies are reviewed and approved by the TPCA Board of Directors.

Policies are classified using the National Educational Policy Network (NEPN) coding system defined by the National School Boards Association. TPCA specific policies are preceded by a “T” and appear below. Click on a policy topic to move within this page to that series of documents.
