Charter Contract Renewals

Charter renewal marks a critical juncture for a school, and the renewal decision is one of the Charter School Commission’s most important responsibilities as a charter school authorizer. At renewal, the Commission must determine whether a school has met its public commitments to the children and families it serves, as well as to the community. The renewal process requires thorough analyses of a comprehensive body of quantitative and qualitative data based on annual performance reviews over the charter term; the school’s renewal application; and a renewal site visit. It culminates in a Commission decision to renew or non-renew the charter.
