Charter Renewal and Closure
The charter school renewal process is similar to the initial charter school petition process, but there are substantial differences. Renewal applications must meet the same legal requirements and cover all the required elements of a charter petition, but in addition, they must include renewal criteria demonstrating school progress and success, including state API data. Additionally, there may be recently added requirements not addressed in the previous petition application which will need to be included in the renewal petition. The resources available on this page have been developed to assist schools through this process.
