Chicago Public Schools Promises Accountability for Low-Performing Charters

Chicago Public Schools today announced the process and timeline for its upcoming  renewal process on Tuesday, promising that “charter schools that do not meet the terms of their contract will not be renewed.”

“Every school in every corner of the city, regardless of school type, must be held to rigorous accountability standards without exception to ensure all students have access to the high-quality education they deserve,” said CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett. “We can and will take action on operators who have failed to meet the terms of their agreements.”
