A Closer Look at the Charter Renewal Data Provisions & Criteria


Wednesday, March 13, 2024

What do you get when you combine incredibly complicated renewal statutes with a lack of clarity about how to consider student performance data? Confusion! This session workshop aims to provide a framework for considering data in alignment with the renewal criteria. When should a school’s student progress be considered “insufficient”? When is closure in students’ best interests? The workshop will provide a critical yet sensible look at related data:

  • View student achievement data through the lens of legal grounds for denial:
    • “Insufficient progress”
    • “Closure is in the best interest of students”
  • Examine how the above criteria fit, –and do not fit, –with “verified data” that authorizers are required to consider
    • Using Dashboard state and local indicators in renewal
    • Using verified data sources to show growth
  • Address confusion about the use of CAASPP and ELPAC in renewal
  • Analyze strengths, limitations, and distortions in various data sources, including the importance of using confidence intervals rather than cut-points in high stakes decisions
  • Understand the need to get a handle on these complex topics early and build shared understanding with the authorizer
