Overview of Charter Renewal Process & Renewal Data Fundamentals

Wednesday, February 28, 2024
10:00-11:30AM PST


  • Susanne Coie, Accountability & Development Specialist, Charter Schools Development Center


This webinar presents the charter renewal process with a focus on understanding the complex student data components. For renewals this year or to be well-positioned in later years, the workshop is a great place to start. Attendees will have a sense of data points to target and monitor throughout the charter term for a smoother renewal.

  • Understand the basics of renewal petition drafting, timelines, process, and appeals
  • Be aware of new denial grounds related to finance, governance, and dis-enrollment of lower scoring students
  • Review the renewal criteria for each of three “performance tiers”: streamlined/5-7 year renewal (“high”), default/5-year renewal (“middle”), denial/2-year renewal (“low”), and the criteria for Dashboard Alternative Status Schools (DASS)
  • Learn why many schools operate on the margin of the streamlined (“high”) or the denial/2-year (“low”) tiers–or even both of those margins.
  • Consider how to align school planning with renewal data provisions and “verified data”
  • Most importantly, sometimes,: understand the need to communicate effectively and build support for your school
