For School Leaders
Review and Renewal Toolkit
In collaboration with the DC Public Charter School Board, FOCUS prepared a toolkit to support schools during the review and renewal process. This toolkit outlines the process, ways to determine if your school is on track to achieve the goals outlined in their charter agreement, and what to do or expect if your school is not on track to achieve its goals. This toolkit should be seen as a roadmap for schools and throughout the toolkit you will find tips from FOCUS.
