Definition of School, Campus, and Facility Policy
According to the School Reform Act (“SRA”), each school is its own Local Education Agency (“LEA”). Some public charter schools or LEAs have multiple campuses and/or operate in more than one facility. Pursuant to a school’s charter agreement, DC PCSB may close a single underperforming campus instead of revoking the entire charter, which would result in all campuses closing regardless of performance, if a charter school is designated as a multi-campus school. This policy defines school, campus, and facility to clarify PCSB's charter granting, expansion, replication, and closure policies.
