Ocean Grove Charter School (OGCS) is a WASC accredited charter school managed by Innovative Education Management (IEM). The school is part of the IEM family of parent choice charter schools that thousands of families have chosen for their children in grades TK through 12 since 1998. OGCS was approved as an independent study charter by the California Department of Education in 2005. The school serves students in Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, Santa Clara, & San Mateo counties.
Parents work with a California credentialed teacher to develop individualized learning opportunities by: choosing home-based or community-based instruction, selecting individualized curriculum based on learning style and functioning grade level, providing materials, resources and supportive instruction, and promoting real-life context-based learning. Our Education Specialists are highly trained, No Child Left Behind certified credentialed professionals available to you as needed in home-based and independent study learning environments.
Look at our School Accountability Report Card (SARC) which is required by law to be published annually and contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school.
California has recently launched a significant change to how schools are funded. This new funding model uses a new formula designed to provide more local control over spending. As a result, each district (in our case, each school) is required to create a Local Control Accountability Plan called the LCAP. As part of our schools' continuing effort to engage stakeholders and capture parent, guardian and community input on the LCAP, the IEM Schools have developed a LCFF/LCAP Advisory Information page to explain the new state law, post information as it becomes available, and gather feedback from you as our plan is created.Learn more about our school by looking through our charter, our school policies and other documents or call Parent Support at 1-800-979-4436.
