On June 10, 2021, the Commission offered new five-year charter contracts to 13 charter schools that included a new Performance Framework.
Charter Contract 4.0, adopted by the Commission at the end of the 2020-2021 school year, included a new Performance Framework that encompassed a year of listening, engagement and working with schools to develop a performance framework that uses multiple measures and provides individual schools the opportunity to share measures of student growth aligned with their individual school initiatives.
