- A continually low-performing charter school is a charter school that has been designated by the State Board as low-performing for at least two of three consecutive years.
- If a charter school is continually low-performing, the State Board is authorized to terminate, not renew, or seek applicants to assume the charter through the competitive bid process established by the State Board in CHTR-017.
- The State Board shall not terminate or not renew the charter of a continually low-performing charter school solely for its continually low-performing status if the charter school has met growth in each of the immediately preceding three school years or if the charter school has implemented a strategic improvement plan approved by the State Board and is making measureable progress toward student performance goals.
- This policy does not prohibit the State Board of Education from taking any action that is otherwise legal and appropriate pursuant to G.S. 115C-218.95.
