The A-GAME Community is now welcoming new members!
It took a country overcome by a pandemic, divided by politics, and distracted by social media for many of us to realize that schools are responsible for much more than teaching reading, writing and math. Charter school authorizers have the opportunity to influence how schools support their students' recovery by measuring what matters most, which we call the A-GAME: Assess--Global access, Academics, Mission, and Equity and Engagement.
This community is open to all authorizers, free of charge. Dates of the 2022-23 Community Meetings are:
- Feb. 1, 2023 | 1:00-2:30pm EST | Virtual
- Apr. 12, 2023 | 1:00-2:30 pm EST | Virtual
- Spring TBD | 1 ½ Days | In Person
- First Day of NACSA’s 2023 Conference | Full Day | In Person
Interested? Complete this form.
In the 2022-23 school year, there are three additional opportunities to work with the A-GAME Facilitators, all free of charge. We will be selecting partners by January 15, 2022. If you would like to be considered, please complete the interest form.
For Authorizers | Designing Frameworks
Be one of the 15 authorizing agencies that work with A-GAME facilitators one-on-one to revise your current framework and/or renewal process to incorporate A-GAME's Responsive Goals. By partnering with families and schools and using examples from other authorizers and national data, we support you in creating the oversight atmosphere that will result in schools that are responsive to your families and schools' needs.
For Schools | Unique Goals
Be one of the 9 schools (either independently or in partnership with your authorizer) that works with A-GAME facilitators to create charter-specific goals outside of state or authorizing frameworks to monitor continuous improvement or oversight related to authorizing, funding, or board governance.
For Agencies | Goals to Identify Distressed Schools
Join a cohort of 6 authorizing agencies that will work together and with WestEd facilitators to create customized Indicators of Distress that can help you identify schools that are struggling prior to them falling into Priority Status or have results that could lead to non-renewal.
The A-GAME grant work is brought to you in partnership with:
