Accountability Requirements


Introduction

Accountability requirements for annual improvement of operating charter schools and the renewal of a charter employ the same level of rigor as the application process. For a charter school to be successful, the school, as an organization, must develop a systems perspective that aligns, connects, and reinforces efforts of continuous improvement. The school must develop the capacity to use data in a meaningful manner to evaluate improvement efforts. The school must be creative, adaptive, and flexible in order to take advantage of opportunities for improvement.
