State of Charter Authorizing: 2015 State of Charter Authorizing Report
National Association of Charter School Authorizers
Since 2008, the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) has annually surveyed our nation's authorizers. Survey findings provide an annual measuring stick for those in the field of authorizing, and they help education decision makers, foundations, legislators, and researchers inform their understanding of the field of charter school authorizing. Findings from 2014-15 illustrate an increase in the number of authorizers using at least 90 percent of NACSA's recommended 12 Essential Practices. But with fewer than 90 percent of authorizers stating that they use a mission for quality authorizing, written annual reports, and an expert panel to review applications, there is still work to be done.
