Charter School Closure Policy


Friday, March 15, 2013

The purpose of this policy is to set expectations and provide guidance and technical assistance with regard to the state-level issues related to the closure of a District of Columbia public charter school, also referred to as a Local Educational Agency (LEA).

A charter school may close for a variety of reasons including, for example, voluntary relinquishment of a charter, charter revocation, or nonrenewal of a charter by the authorizing authority. A charter school closure is governed by applicable laws and regulations, and appropriate procedures established by the charter authorizing authority, including the District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (PCSB).

This policy highlights the following state-level concerns:

I. Notification of Closure Status

II. Student Records and Retention

III. Students with Disabilities

IV. Students attending a Non Public School

V. Financial and Grants Closeout

VI. Dispersal of Unspent Funds

VII. Disposition of Assets

VIII. Data Collection and Reporting

IX. Consolidations and Mergers

X. UPSFF Payments and Remittance
