D.C. Public Charter School Board Hosts Briefing on Charter School Performance Evaluation
The PMF is an evaluation instrument based on a standard set of measures for each public charter school. The evaluation is divided into the academic elements directly related to student outcomes and the non-academic elements of school performance, which include finance, governance, and compliance. The overall assessment determines whether a school is designated a high performer, mid-performer or low performer. The key objective is to drive high-achieving schools to full potential, mediocre schools to high-achieving levels, and to eliminate low-performing schools.
There will be a series of community meetings in November to answer questions about school results and what they will mean for students and schools. Exact dates and locations will be announced later.
The D.C. Public Charter School Board currently oversees 52 public charter schools on 94 campuses serving more than 29,000 students living in every ward of the city. Public charter schools now serve approximately 39% of all public school students in Washington, DC. Learn more about PCSB at www.dcpubliccharter.com
