Across Pennsylvania and our nation, the education community has a difficult time quantifying what makes a high-quality public charter school. When looking only at test scores, some Pennsylvania charter schools (and traditional public schools) fail to achieve what is considered a passing grade on the state’s standardized tests and charter school adversaries use this poor performance on test scores as an opportunity to attack the broader charter sector. At PCPCS, we have decided that it is time to formally define a “high-quality public charter school” by going beyond just test scores by creating a workbook that we believe  can assist charter schools to prepare for renewal, during periods of transition, or any other time of self-reflection. Click here to view the workbook.
