PUBLIC SCHOOL CHOICE ACCOUNTABILITY OVERVIEW
The Public School Choice (PSC) Resolution was adopted by the Board of Education on August 25, 2009 in an effort to create more schools of choice and educational options for the District's students and families. The Resolution additionally directed the Superintendent to develop a reauthorization process for PSC Schools that is based on regular performance evaluations. PSC Schools undertake the following types of reviews to meet the accountability requirements of the resolution:
- PSC Renewal: conducted every 3-5 years by an external review team to determine renewal status for the school, renewal cycle may vary depending on school's initial PSC plan approval or previous renewal terms. Some schools may be visited earlier at the Superintendent's discretion.
- PSC School Review: an annual self-review completed by all PSC Schools unless they are in a renewal year.
