A.R.S §15-183(I)(3) requires a charter school sponser to review a charter at five-year intervals using a performance framework adopted by the sponsor. At five-year intervals throughout the term of the charter, a charter holder will be notified of the review, as well as the submission requirements determined based upon the charter holder's performance in relation to the performance framework adopted by the Board. As part of the Five-Year Interval Review, Board staff will conduct an Academic Systems Review (ASR), including a review of compliance, for each of the schools operated by the charter holder.
The ASR is an on-site visit to gather evidence regarding the school's implementation in providing a comprehensive program of instruction and designing a method to measure pupil progress toward pupil outcomes, as required in the charter contract. An ASR on-site visit is an unannounced visit. A minimum of two weeks prior to a school's site visit, the charter holder will be notified of a 14 day window in which the visit will occur.
A list of charter holders undergoing an interval review is posted annually on the Board's website. See the list of charter holders below. More detailed information on the Five-Year Interval Review process is provided below.
