Charter Currents: Local Indicator Deadline this Friday, September 30 at 5:00PM

September 28, 2022

Charter schools have a particular interest in this Friday’s deadline to upload local indicator data to the California School Dashboard. Missing the deadline for two consecutive years is one of the ways that Local Education Agencies (LEAs) are identified as “eligible for differentiated assistance,” part of the state’s school accountability framework. Charter schools identified as “eligible for differentiated assistance” cannot renew using the most advantageous of the four sets of charter renewal standards: the “safe” renewal track that minimizes burden and risk and allows a renewal term of five to seven years.
