School Performance Contracts
Along with the in-district charter application, the Board of Trustees will also review and approve rigorous performance contracts for all in-district charter schools. These contracts are developed by the Office of Innovation, in collaboration with the schools. The contracts will include metrics on STAAR achievement and growth, fidelity to the charter, teacher and parent satisfaction, student attendance and attrition, and financial health. On an annual basis, the Board will monitor and publish school results at a public board meeting. Then, on a 3 to 5 year cycle, the Board will review performance contracts to determine whether an in-district charter should be renewed, revoked or placed on probation.
