Building Charter School Quality
A project funded by the United States Department of Education Office of Innovation and Improvement

Welcome to Building Charter School Quality:

Across the United States, there is a strong need for the education reform movement to achieve greater clarity and focus on the measures by which public charter school success is assessed. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Charter School Program in the Office of Innovation and Improvement, the BCSQ project is aligning expectations among school operators, authorizers, and policymakers around how a quality charter school performs and how various stakeholders can work together to hold schools accountable for improved student achievement through a quality public education.
