Charter School Organization Announces Resources for Charter School Performance and Accountability

The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) has released two sets of resources to enable charter schools to improve their outcomes. The first, “Core Performance Framework and Guidance” provides a clearly defined set of academic, financial, and operational performance criteria for charter school authorizers and a template to customize those frameworks. Additionally, NACSA is providing state policy guidance as another resource to strengthen charter school performance and accountability. To develop these frameworks, NACSA has worked with a number of authorizers around the country to establish recommendations to strengthen performance and accountability consistent with state laws.
