Why does my school need to undergo a charter review?

DC PCSB is required by the School Reform Act or SRA to review each school at least once every five years. Generally, these charter reviews are conducted during each school’s fifth and tenth year in operation, and we will perform additional reviews of schools outside of this schedule, if needed.

We may conduct a charter review if a school:

  • Is identified as a Tier 3 school on the School Quality Reports that uses the performance management framework (PMF) to calcuate the results
  • Is not meeting conditions of previouse charter reviews and renewals
