Accountability for Student Performance: An Annotated Resource Guide for Shaping an Accountability Plan for Your Charter School.
Charter Friends National Network, St. Paul, MN.
This report suggests that charter schools need to consider six critical questions as they develop a student accountability plan for their school. These questions are: (1) "What is our school's mission?"; (2) "What do we want our students to know and be able to do?"; (3) "How will we know whether our students are achieving or attaining the goals and standards specified in our charter"?; (4) "How will we gather and monitor the necessary student performance information?"; (5) "How will we set and measure progress toward school performance goals?"; and (6) "How will we use the student and school performance information we have gathered?" For each of these questions, resources are listed. These include printed materials, web sites, and organizations with expertise in charter schools. (SLD)
