Contract 4.0 - May 13, 2021

After a year-long process of engagement with all public charter schools that involved working with commissioners and staff, the Commission negotiated and adopted an updated Charter Contract 4.0 with revised Academic, Organizational, and Financial Framework expectations. 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.
