Section 1002.33(9), Florida Statutes, and State Board of Education Rule 6A-1.099827, F.A.C., require low performing charter schools to develop and implement strategies to raise student achievement.
A charter school that receives a school grade of "D" or "F" must develop and implement a school improvement plan. The plan must be approved by the charter school's sponsor.
A charter school that earns three consecutive grades below a “C” must develop and implement a school improvement plan which must include one of the following corrective actions:
- Contract for educational services to be provided directly to students, instructional personnel, and school administrators;
- Contract with an outside entity that has a demonstrated record of effectiveness to operate the school;
- Reorganize the school under a new director or principal who is authorized to hire new staff; or
- Voluntarily Close.
State Board of Education rule 6A-1.099827, FAC, includes additional requirements related to school improvement and academic corrective action plans.
The following charter schools are subject to the requirements above. The list that appears below is preliminary (the school grade appeal window closes July 31, 2019) and is based on the release of 2018-19 school grades.
