Public Hearing on Booker T. Washington 15- Year Charter Renewal
Every DC charter school operates under a charter, which is granted for 15 years. Near the end of that term, a school must apply to renew their charter, and in its application, the school must show that it has accomplished what it pledged to do in its charter. There are seven schools this year that will undergo charter renewal. (Read more about the process in the 15-year Charter Renewal FAQ here).
