Starting Fresh in Failing Schools

Starting Fresh in Low-performing Schools

startingfresh3Public Impact is also working with the National Association of Charter School Authorizers on a series of publications specifically on “starting fresh” – the chartering and contracting options. The series includes an overview [pdf] and how-to guides on selecting the right providers [pdf], engaging parents and community [pdf], and setting clear contract terms [pdf].


Using Chartering to Meet Demands of NCLB

In this federally funded initiative, Public Impact partnered with Education Commission of the States to help states and districts use chartering to meet relevant requirements of No Child Left Behind. Through meetings of policymakers and a series of publications on critical issues, the project focuses on using chartering to create new options for families and to intervene in chronically low-performing schools.
