The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) and CCSA Invite You to a Special Town Hall Event

  • Print

October 11, 2013 Continued growth of the charter sector in the coming years will be fueled largely by the replication of high-performing schools. While many authorizers currently focus on attracting a handful of successful national CMOs, it is probably as important to encourage replication on a smaller scale. Recent research suggests that individual high-performing schools may be able to grow to a local two- or three-school network without any overall reduction in quality.

Please join us, Thursday, October 24, 2013 from 9-10:30 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla for this town hall event hosted by NACSA and learn more about the future growth of the charter school movement.

What is the role of authorizers in identifying schools that should be encouraged or allowed to replicate? What is the role of charter school incubators and charter support organizations? What kinds of reflection and planning does the replicating school need to undertake as it seeks to grow and maintain quality? Is this how significant growth of the charter sector will occur?

CCSA President and CEO, Jed Wallace will be the moderator.

This event is free for members of the San Diego-area charter school community as part of the 2013 NACSA Leadership Conference. Advanced registration to nacsa@qualitycharters.org is required.
