Knowledge Core Keyword: Contract
This is the Existing Schools Information Template that accompanies NACSA’s Knowledge Core course, “Charter Application Process and Decision Making: Evaluating School Replicators.” This template is intended for authorizers to use to keep a clear record of important criteria for existing schools in one place for easy comparison.
This Core Contract can be customized by authorizers to meet a variety of circumstances. Some of the sections include: Governance, Third-Party Management Providers, English-Language Learners, Students with Disabilities, School Performance Standards and more.
This case study is one in a series that explores local progress on charter school authorizing in various corners of our country. We’ll dig into what was needed, how it happened, and why it matters to the ultimate quest we all share: creating and sustaining great public schools for all U.S. children.
The series starts in our nation’s most far-flung locale: Hawaii.
