We are dedicated to creating an outstanding portfolio of public charter schools. We are steadfast in our approach to holding our schools to high standards to ensure that all students receive an education that thoroughly prepares them for college or career. In developing a strong portfolio of schools, we make as much data available to the public as possible and set tough but attainable accountability targets and standards for schools.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is the District of Columbia's annual assessment of mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA), based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
These assessments measure the knowledge and skills that matter most for students — understanding complex texts, evidence-based writing, mathematical problem-solving — all skills that lead to confidence and success in key academic areas.
The principal source of DC Public Charter School Board's (DC PCSB) revenue is a 1.0% administrative oversight fee charged to each local education agency (LEA) to cover the cost of conducting its responsibilities related to the oversight of each public charter LEA. The DC School Reform Act of 1995 allows DC PCSB to assess this fee based on each LEA's budget. Read the Administrative Fee Policy to learn more.
