Plan Ahead for Charter Renewal: The Basics
This session is recorded. Register for the recordings package.
CSDC encourages leaders to understand charter renewal years ahead of renewal. This session provides an overview of the charter renewal standards, trends and appeals, including procedural and political elements that can be critical. Charter renewal standards include overarching standards plus four separate standards that are applied to each school.
The session briefly introduces the “track sorting” process and provides an overview of “verified data,” a significant component of renewals through 2025. These topics will be covered more deeply in sessions that follow this overview session. This presentation assumes basic understanding of the California School Dashboard. Sunday’s “Intro to Charter Renewal, Data, and Accountability” will provide relevant background.
