In order to continue operating, every charter must be re-authorized (renewed) at the end of its charter term, usually 5 years.
Through its CharterRenewal program, GCSA offers support to schools up to 18 months prior to renewal and throughout the renewal process. The program is designed to ensure that schools understand the most recent legal and regulatory requirements for local and state authorizers and that schools include key information in their charter renewal petition which will ensure a successful renewal and adherence to GCSA’s Quality School Standards.
- Operational Assessment
