Charter School Renewal
The charter school renewal process is similar to the initial charter school petition process, but there are substantial differences. Renewal applications must meet the same legal requirements and cover all the required elements of a charter petition, but in addition, they must include renewal criteria demonstrating school progress and success, including state API data. Additionally, there may be recently added requirements not addressed in the previous petition application that will need to be included in the renewal petition.
With almost 150 charter schools supported across the country, CSMC has effectively helped our clients through numerous renewals with their authorizer.
