Charter Schools

Financial Oversight

The Financial Performance Framework establishes clear expectations for financial performance and sustainability. While charter schools have the autonomy to manage their finances as they see fit, within the parameters of state and federal law, schools are also responsible for ensuring that the charter program is financially stable and viable.  The financial framework is a monitoring tool that provides us with the key data points to assess the financial health and viability of a school and determine if deeper analysis or monitoring is required. The intent of the Financial Framework is to assess a school's financial position as opposed to evaluating a school's spending decisions.
