Charter schools designated as Dashboard Alternative Status Schools (DASS) typically use an alternative program to serve students facing greater challenges. The California School Dashboard often cannot capture their successes, and academic performance data looks different at such schools. In recognition of this, AB 1505 provided DASS schools with a different charter renewal process. DASS charters may be non-renewed only based on a finding that closure is in the best interest of students. The charter renewal process requires charter schools and authorizers to discuss alternative metrics to be used in charter renewal.

CSDC hosts this online discussion to support DASS schools with this challenging process. The hosts will discuss alternative metrics that make sense for their programs and describe their experience discussing alternative metrics. Attendees are welcome to share their ideas and experiences. Attendees who are interested in meeting periodically will also be welcome to participate in a DASS charter schools affinity group.


CSDC welcomes DASS schools and authorizers to this discussion regardless of their CSDC Membership status. (Learn more about CSDC Membership here.)
