The State Public Charter School Authority put 12 charter schools on a notice of concern Friday after the latest star rating results from 2018-19 showed low performance and gave five more schools a notice of breach of contract because of routine underperformance.
Notices of concern are given to schools with star ratings that slip below three stars in the state’s five-star accountability system, and a notice of breach is typically given to schools that have continued to operate below three stars.
School leaders acknowledged the need for improvement and spelled out the efforts to address their problem areas to authority members, who decide whether to renew the charter schools’ contracts.
Those include leaders of schools previously in the Achievement School District charter initiative, which was eliminated this past legislative session. Existing achievement schools moved under the authority’s purview.
