Best Available Data
When creating goals, it is important to use the best available data. Using national data can give a broader perspective that will help create targets that are right for you.
Our office greatly values the relationships we have established with the charter schools in our portfolio. As an authorizer, Compliance monitoring is certainly an important part of the work, but catching schools doing something wrong is no fun. It's more enjoyable and inspiring to recognize schools for doing something innovative and effective. Students and families are better served when all stakeholders are pulling in the same direction.
