Renewal Process for Charter Schools


Renewal Process Charter Schools

EVALUATING CHARTER SCHOOLS FOR RENEWAL
RSA 194-B:16 (VI) defines the conditions for renewal of a New Hampshire Public Charter School:
“VI. By the end of its final contract year, the charter school shall meet or
exceed the objective academic test results or standards and goals as set forth
in its application. If the school does not meet these results or standards and
goals, it shall not be eligible for renewal of its charter.

Assessment of the charter school’s attainment of performance targets sufficient to merit renewal of
its charter will consider the school’s cumulative performance across the five (5) years of its initial term.

A review team will conduct a review of school documentation to include the monthly/yearly accountability requirements. A scheduled one-day on-site visitation will take place at the Charter School. The on-site review team will observe classrooms, conduct interviews with administration, teachers, parents, and members of the Board of Trustees.

New Hampshire Charter Schools renewed by the State Board of Education to include approved minutes from the State Board of Education meeting and the Charter School Renewal Visitation Summary Report.
