5 Considerations for a Successful Renewal (1)  Past performance  Accountability spreadsheet  Your data story  Strengths, weaknesses, impact, action plans  School improvement plans  Fiscal health  Organizational structure  Changes & rationale/data to support  Organizational effectiveness  Challenges during 1 st charter term

6 Considerations for a Successful Renewal (2)  Compliance  Amendments & administrative clarifications  Proposed changes:  Curriculum  Waivers – you need to demonstrate how you used waivers to close the achievement gap  Support programs  Assessments  Administrative positions  Governance structure, members, practice, training, documented practice, autonomy, committees  GaDOE Mandatory Initiatives  CCRPI  Common Core Standards  Facility Plan

7 Considerations for a Successful Renewal (3)  EMO evaluation  Process  Tool  Feedback  EMO contract  “Sweep” contracts not allowed  Employees must be employees of the school, not the EMO  Fee analysis & negotiation  Facility arrangement  Documented quarterly review of management agreement

8 Lessons Learned…..  Time management  Capacity  Lack of in-depth analysis  Lack of in-depth school improvement plan when applicable  In sufficient governance training and documented practice  Lack of research / analysis to support changes  Lack of autonomy  Failure to make required changes to EMO contract / relationship

9 Reflect on Renewal Readiness:  Who will participate on “renewal team”?  Who will conduct the analysis of the current term?  Who will revise the petition and execute related documents?  What challenges do you anticipate with your renewal process and/or proposal?


11 Succession Planning  Identify key board and committee  Identify skills & knowledge requirements  Identify criteria for membership (i.e. education level, specialty, experience)  Identify potential candidates  Use committees to “groom” future board members  Develop a written board member job description  Include succession planning in strategic plan  Risk management  Strategic leadership development  Emergency succession  Strategic leader development  Departure-defined succession (anticipated departures)

12 Succession Planning  Succession readiness checklist:  A strategic plan is in place with goals and objectives for charter term  The board evaluates the school & board leaders annually  The board practice is sound  A solid team culture is in place  Cross-training plan is in place for key positions at the school level  Financial reserve is in place with a minimum of three months operating capital  Financial systems meet industry standard  Operational manual exists for key administrative and board systems and procedures  Key staff & committee chairs have documented their key activities in writing and have identified other staff who can carry out duties  Develop calendar of major board decision and strategic work  Communication plan  Diversity plan
