Charter Currents: Local Indicators Due with LCAP, Are Now Part of Charter Renewal Data

June 8, 2021

This year, for the first time, Local Education Agencies (LEAs) must report local indicators on the California School Dashboard (Dashboard) to their governing boards in conjunction with Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) adoption. Local indicators now have particular significance to charter renewal decisions. Current statute requires authorizers to consider Dashboard state and local indicators, and, in many cases, “verified data.” As such, charter school leaders may want to consider local indicators through the lens of renewal.
