In July 2019, the Board implemented additional transparency requirements for the charter schools it sponsors and approved a plan for rolling out these requirements in fiscal year 2020. More information about the additional transparency requirements is included below.
Education Service Provider
By September 1 of each year, the Board’s rules require each charter holder to notify the Board as to whether it has an agreement or contract with an education service provider for the current year. Even if a charter holder does not have such an agreement or contract, it is required to submit the form indicating this. For those that have such an arrangement, the rules require the charter holder to provide certain information to the Board.
Please click on the above link to access the form. It is recommended to "Download" and save the document, and then open the saved document to complete form. If the form is not downloaded, inputted information often does not save, resulting in an incomplete submission. Charter holders are also welcome to print, complete, and scan the form to submit it.
The Board’s rules require a charter holder to report to the Board within 10 business days of receipt or occurrence certain items, such as tax liens and default notices, that could indicate there might be some financial stress on the organization. Notices and occurrences that take place between July 1, 2019 and August 1, 2019 must be reported to the Board by the charter holder no later than August 15, 2019. To assist charter holders in complying with the rule’s requirements, the Board has developed a form (see below) that allows the charter holder to easily submit the required information to the Board and has provided answers to frequently asked questions.

Website Link to Performance Dashboards
The Board’s rules require each charter school to conspicuously and permanently post a link on its website to the charter school’s academic performance dashboard and the charter holder’s financial and operational performance dashboards on the Board’s website. New schools must conspicuously post the link by September 1 of their first year of operation. To assist schools in complying with this requirement, a file is included below that contains the link to each charter holder’s “Performance” tab in ASBCS Online, and the Board has provided answers to frequently asked questions.
