We believe every child deserves access to a high-quality education. To ensure this, OEI provides rigorous oversight to Mayor-sponsored charter schools. As a charter school authorizer, we believe schools can operate with autonomy in exchange for accountability. Each year when formally monitoring and evaluating the schools in our portfolio, we focus on three core questions:
In site evaluation years (Years 2, 4, and 6 in the initial charter term; Years 3 and 6 thereafter), the site evaluator also examines Core Question 4: Is the school providing the appropriate conditions for success?
The below documents contain all governance, performance, and reporting requirements for Mayor-sponsored charter schools.
