Know your Rights: Students with Disabilities in Charter Schools
The Asbestos Management Plan is on file on campus.
The designated asbestos coordinator for MC2 is Chris O’Reilly: email@example.com.
“If I were to create a high school that uses the most progressive and developmentally appropriate learning techniques, I couldn’t come up with a better model than MC2. Having students move through the competencies at their own pace (within reason) and having internships and volunteering, are all effective ways to learn.”– MC2 Parent
