Instructions for subscribing to the charter-schools listserv and FAQs regarding the listserv.

The main goal of the California Department of Education (CDE) charter-schools listserv is to provide the California charter school community and other interested parties a conduit to important and time sensitive information from the CDE. The charter-schools listserv is maintained by the Lyris Listserv team in coordination with Charter Schools Division staff.

Listserv Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are there any rules regarding message content?

Currently, list member postings are not permitted. For individuals interested in sharing important news with charter school colleagues, we invite you to submit requests/recommendations for postings to the Charter-Schools Listserv at charters@cde.ca.gov.

My school or personal e-mail service provider has restrictions on specific types of and/or size of attachments. Will this be a problem on the charter-schools listserv?

We anticipate sending most e-mails with hyper links to the CDE Web site where, at the user's option, the documents and information can be viewed, printed and downloaded. On occasions we may need to include attachments, but in no case would we forward executable application files. Typical attachment formats may include MS Word documents, MS Excel Spreadsheets, and Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF).

How do I know if I am subscribed to a list?

You will receive a list generated confirmation e-mail confirming your subscription.

I subscribed to the list months ago. Now I am not getting any messages, but a colleague at my school is getting messages from the same mailing list. What happened?

Your e-mail address may have been removed from the mailing list due to a problem at your site with your e-mail system. If you are not receiving messages, please re-subscribe to the Charter-Schools Listserv by filling in the subscription information at the top of this page.

My e-mail address is changing. What should I do?

If your e-mail address changes, you are responsible for changing your address on the list. You may do so by unsubscribing your old e-mail address in the box at the top of the page and then subscribing your new address.
