All New York State charter schools must submit annual reports to the Board of Regents and their authorizer each year.
The Accountability Plan lays out the specific student achievement goals that a school agrees to meet and the specific measures that define what constitutes meeting these goals. These plans establish a common set of goals and outcome measures that represent expectations the SUNY Trustees hold for student learning and achievement. Progress in meeting the Accountability Plan is used in evaluating whether a school receives approval to continue operating.
Charter schools, like all public schools, are evaluated using the school’s performance on New York State exams. Goals and measures for performance in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies are established. Schools may also choose to include in their Accountability Plan optional academic, as well as organizational or other non-academic goals and measures.
