Six Quality Outcomes for New Schools

A new charter school, at the end of its first year, should be able to demonstrate these six quality outcomes. Each quality outcome carries equal importance. A healthy school will have a solid foundation in each of these areas that are critical toward the overall health and long-term success of a school.


  • Qualified and Competent School Leadership: Has instilled confidence from teachers, parents, board, and students and has effectively begun to implement many components of the school proposal.

  • Sound Operational Practices: Foundations for strong fiscal management and effective business operations have been established and are being adhered to.

  • Efficient Governance: Board has obtained initial training, is committed to ongoing training, understands the role and adheres to state statutes and board policies with fidelity.

  • Effective Academics & Instruction: Curriculum in place and effectively implemented by instructional staff to engage students for optimal learning using multiple approaches (MTSS).

  • Robust Performance Management Plan: Data from a Student Information System, Data Management System, and Interim Assessments are being used effectively to guide instruction and school culture.

  • Clear, Mission-Driven School Culture: A strong, mission-driven culture has been established and evidence of the culture can be easily observed throughout most aspects of the school.
