This session will provide an update on the Charter Schools Office’s prioritized focus on high quality charter school authorizing in alignment with national best practice standards. This has been most apparent in the new school review process, but we are equally committed to ensuring that all charter schools directly authorized by the Board of Regents are of the highest quality through our ongoing performance oversight and renewal process.

policy advisory group
Policy Advisory Group
  • Regents-Authorized Charter School Policy Advisory Group. We continue our process of developing and revising our oversight policies and protocols. Last spring, I made a more general call for volunteers to participate in focus group discussions on these topics. I would like to focus this request for volunteers to policies that directly affect Regents-authorized charters. One of the first topics of discussion will be the above-mentioned Performance Framework. I anticipate that this group will meet (generally over conference call) upon request throughout the 2011-2012 school year to provide field-based input on policy development topics. If interested, please send Robin Clow (rclow@mail.nysed.gov) an email message with a subject line of “Regents-Authorized Charter School Policy Advisory Group” containing your contact information (email address and phone number) and a very brief experience history and statement about the perspective and insights you would add to state-level policymaking discussions.
