The Charter School Performance Framework (CSPF) is intended to provide parents, the public, charter operators, as well as the charter authorizer with a snapshot of each charter’s academic, financial, and operational performance.
Charter schools are encouraged to refer to the performance framework on a continuing basis in order to self-assess overall health and viability of their school throughout the charter term. The performance framework will be used to inform decisions that will help to identify schools that are candidates for replication, expansion, intervention, renewal, nonrenewal, or closure.
