GETTING STRONGER USING POLICY

Missouri has added Department-created annual reports for each charter school and replication opportunities for high-quality schools.


NOTEWORTHY IN 2016

SCORE INCREASE: +4

  • Reports on Performance (+3). By law, the Department of Education must produce an annual report for each charter school, citing the school’s annual performance.
  • Performance Management and Replication (+1: Replication). High-quality charter schools must be provided expedited opportunities to replicate in certain districts.

NACSA RECOMMENDS

  • Improve authorizer standards, making the standards adopted equivalent to nationally recognized best practices in charter school authorizing. 
  • Establish a defined academic performance threshold for the existing default closure provision. Creating a universal metric for the application of the default closure statute makes it easier for authorizers to identify and close persistently failing charter schools.
