The Crete Academy Family Handbook was developed to provide you with information about our school, including the school structure, programs, and policies. Please read this handbook carefully and review it with your child. We hope that this handbook empowers you to be an informed and proactive parent and partner with us in your child’s educational journey. Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Crete family!
The Crete Academy Employee Handbook is designed to help employees get acquainted with Crete Academy (hereinafter referred to as “Crete Academy” or the “School”). It explains some of our philosophies and beliefs and describes some of our employment guidelines in general terms. Although this Handbook is not intended to be exclusive or comprehensive policies and procedures manual, we hope that it will serve as a useful reference document for employees throughout their employment at the School. Employees should understand, however, that this Handbook is not intended to be a contract (express or implied), nor is it intended to otherwise create any legally enforceable obligations on the part of the School or its employees. In no way does the Handbook replace any official plan documents (e.g., health insurance, retirement plan, etc.) or insurance contracts, which will govern in all cases. This Handbook supersedes and replaces all previous personnel policies, practices, and guidelines.
Local Control Accountability Plan - LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for LEAs (county office of education [COE], school districts and charter schools) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs.
