As mandated by the Pennsylvania Charter School Law, public school districts, as charter school authorizer, must conduct annual reviews of each charter school under their jurisdiction. This includes an annual site visit to each school by a review team comprised of PPS staff from various departments and areas of expertise.
Materials and documentation from the following areas are reviewed: Curriculum, Assessment, School Administration, Special Education and Finance. Annual Reports are developed to provide an overview of school demographics, a summary of the findings and recommendations gathered from the site visit, and achievement and growth data. A facility evaluation from a site inspection conducted by an external contractor is also included.
