The educational performance of North Carolina charter schools, along with their financial stability and adherence to best practices, is now all available on one website from the state Department of Public Instruction.
This is the first time the state has offered such comprehensive information on charters, DPI said.
A national charter school authorizing group said the information is a big step in increased accountability and transparency.
“It demonstrates the State Board of Education’s commitment to setting high expectations and holding schools accountable for results – the premise charter schools were built on when North Carolina started authorizing charters 19 years ago,” William Haft, a vice president with the National Association of Charter School Authorizers, said in a statement.
The state has 146 charter schools, and 15 more are slated to open in August. Information on each school can be found at http://bit.ly/1HAGtgv.
