Florida 2016 State Policy Detail
EXPANDING SECTOR NEEDS SMART GROWTH
The state’s authorizers have called on the Legislature to enact smart policy enabling them to provide strong accountability and oversight of the state’s large charter school sector.
- Enrich the annual reports on school performance by including data from authorizers on the progress each school is making towards its contractual performance goals.
- Require authorizers to use performance frameworks with academic, financial, and organizational performance metrics and incorporate that into the charter contract. This establishes the agreed-upon expectations for school performance before a school is open, providing a basis for on-going accountability and renewal decisions.
