During the final year of an authorized school’s active contract, the school is required to submit an application for renewal that summarizes how it fulfilled the terms of its active contract, the strategic direction it plans for the years of a reauthorized contract, and potential performance goals for a future contract. ACNW CSD reviews that application, conducts a Renewal Site Visit, completes a Renewal Evaluation Report, and compiles a recommendation for or against renewal to the ACNW Board of Directors. Those recommendations are reviewed and affirmed or amended by the Charter School Committee. The Charter School Committee’s recommendations are then presented to the ACNW Board for adoption or amendment.
