Description

As the sole entity with the power to open and close public charter schools in the nation’s capital, the DC Public Charter School Board is leading the transformation of public education in Washington, DC by creating quality school options for students, families and communities. Since its inception in 1997, our mission has been to enable public school students in Washington DC to fulfill their education goals through the creation of high-quality charter schools that foster successful learning environments for all children. We use several tools to evaluate charter school quality, including our Performance Management Framework (PMF), an annual report of school performance based on school data. Through our seven-member voting board and experienced staff, we bring an unparalleled high-quality approach to authorizing new schools and monitoring our portfolio so that the schools that do not deliver on their education promise no longer serve Washington, DC students. We are recognized as a national model for holding charter schools accountable by going beyond compliance to making decision that encourage a higher standard of school performance.
