The National Charter School Resource Center New Case Study: DC Public Charter School Board

  • Print

April 20, 2016 The National Charter School Resource Center (NCSRC) recently visited the DC Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB) to learn about its authorizing process, and more specifically, to highlight a case in which it facilitated a charter takeover for a low-performing public charter school in its portfolio. Although a charter takeover is not the primary policy solution for low-performing charter schools, in this case, the Board of Trustees of the low-performing school and DC PCSB decided it was the right path to pursue.
