Renewal Process for Charter Schools


Renewal Process Charter Schools

CHARTER RENEWAL PROCESS

The renewal of a charter school takes place every five years. The renewal process consists of a comprehensive on-site review conducted by a team of educators to determine if the school has adequately fulfilled the promises outlined in its charter.

The on-site review team conducts focus group interviews with school leadership, teachers, parents, students and members of the Board of Trustees.

The school's performance described in the renewal application, yearly assessment results and charter accountability documents provides, along with the on-site review, the evidence needed to monitor progress toward the charter school's academic performance, financial and organizational goals and sustainability.

Overall findings of the school's performance and a recommendation for renewal will be presented to the New Hampshire State Board of Education. The State Board of Education will make the final determination to renew the charter school for another five-year term.
