The best time to think about renewing your charter is the day your application is approved by the State Board of Education. The Commission will assist you in staying on top of changes to your charter, charting your successes and addressing gaps in performance. Innovative school models need to gather important data that will track the impact of the model. These data help families and educators make decisions about joining your school. They inform your governing boards decisions and they compel your sponsor and the State Board of Education to renew or revoke your charter. Districts and charter schools will benefit from learning about your best and promising practices that are helping students learn, expanding instructional skills, finding new and effective ways to engage parents and the community, developing successful school leaders.
Existing charter schools seeking Commission sponsorship at their renewal are considered new applicants.
