Charter Renewal Criteria
(Preliminary Renewal Petition language for submission for charter renewal 2021 - 2026)
Evidence of Meeting Charter Renewal Standards Pursuant to Education Code Section 47607(b) and the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Section 11966.4(a)(1)
Charter petitions must satisfy at least three requirements to be renewed:
1. Education Code Section 47607(a)(3)(A) states: “The authority that granted the charter shall consider increases in pupil academic achievement for all groups of pupils served by the charter school as the most important factor in determining whether to grant a charter renewal.”
Such increases are documented below.
2. Education Code Section 52052(f) states: “For purposes of paragraphs (1) to (3), inclusive, of subdivision (b) of Section 47607, alternative measures that show increases in pupil academic achievement for all groups of pupils schoolwide and among numerically significant pupil subgroups shall be used.”
The alternative measures that show increases at the Charter School are documented below.
3. Education Code Section 47607(b)(4) states: “The entity that granted the charter determines that the academic performance of the charter school is at least equal to the academic performance of the public schools that the charter school pupils would otherwise have been required to attend, as well as the academic performance of the schools in the school district in which the charter school is located, taking into account the composition of the pupil population that is served at the charter school.”
This determination, which requires a comparison to other public schools, is documented below.
4. Title 5, California Code of Regulations Section 11966.4(b)(1) states: “When considering a petition for renewal, the district board of education shall consider the past performance of the school's academics, finances, and operation in evaluating the likelihood of future success, along with future plans for improvement, if any.”
This requirement is met through the documentation presented in the charter renewal petition and appendices.
The following shall serve as documentation confirming that the Charter School meets the statutory criteria required for renewal as set forth in Education Code Sections 47607(a)(3)(A), 52052(f), and 47607(b)(4)
