Public Call for Non-Renewal 2014 Press Kit

December 1, 2014

The California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) has called for the non-renewal of five (5) charter public schools across California that are below CCSA's Minimum Criteria for Renewal. These five charter schools are among the lowest performing schools in the state, have not demonstrated substantial growth over time, and have consistently ranked near the bottom of state and local measures of academic performance.

While California's public schools transition to a new accountability system, CCSA and its members remain committed to ensuring charter schools deliver on their promise to students and their families. Charter schools operate with greater autonomy and flexibility than traditional public schools in exchange for increased accountability. Charter school renewal is the time when charter school authorizers must determine if a charter school is fulfilling this promise.

In December 2014, CCSA called for the non-renewal of the following five charter public schools: South Sutter Charter School (Sutter County); Manzanita Middle School (Contra Costa County); New City Charter School (Los Angeles County); RAI Online Charter School (San Diego County); and Oasis Charter Public School (Monterey County).
