Charter School Oversight: The New Frontier
Farland, Stephanie Medrano
Leadership, v41 n2 p30-32 Nov-Dec 2011
Some areas of charter school oversight are easy to overlook. This article provides a few practical tips for ensuring that legal and moral obligations are met and charter schools are "delivering the goods." Effective charter oversight takes time and diligence. As many districts know, closing or not renewing a charter school can be painful for all involved, especially the students. Quality oversight is designed to prevent charters from closing except in extreme cases of academic or financial failure. It is imperative that local districts and county offices of education review their charter oversight policies and procedures to ensure they are effectively enforced.
