Guidelines for Assignment of School Numbers

  • Generally, a school number should follow the student body when a new school is built. This provides continuity for accountability purposes.

  • A school should have separate student and staff populations and its own school principal.

Guidelines for Assignment of School Numbers

  • One charter equates to one charter school number

  • Apply early because non-active schools will not generate FTE dollars

  • Specific numbers are not always available because non-public schools use the same pool of numbers
