2021-2022 State Charter School Performance Summary

The SCSC annually assesses state charter school performance in the areas of academics, finance and operations through its accountability instrument, the Comprehensive Performance Framework (CPF). Performance standards align with the core components of strong charter schools and reflect the SCSC organizational mission to provide students with better educational opportunities than they would otherwise receive in traditional district schools. Each area of the framework answers a fundamental question through a series of indicators.

  1. Academic Performance: Is the school offering students a better educational opportunity than they would otherwise receive in the traditional district school?
  2. Financial Performance: Is the school financially viable?
  3. Operational Performance: Is the school as an organization effective, compliant and well-managed by the governing board?
