Performance Management: Evaluating Charter School Academic Performance


This National Charter School Resource Center webinar focused on the Core Academic Performance Framework developed by the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA). The September 17, 2013 webinar featured NACSA Director of Knowledge Parker Baxter and Director of Authorizer Development Whitney Spalding Spencer. They discussed the role an academic framework can play in supporting charter school quality.

The webinar covered:

  • Framework measures, why they were selected, and what they say about school performance.
  • The importance of authorizers, state agencies, school leaders, and school boards using the measures to evaluate charter school academic performance.
  • Indicators of academic performance that are not captured in the framework that may be important to monitor in order to drive continuous improvement.
