Policies and Procedures

City of Milwaukee Charter School Review Committee Policies and Procedures Regarding Academic/Education Criteria for School Expansion by Umbrella Organizations

The following policy was adopted by the Charter School Review Committee on August 6, 2012, as a guideline to be used when determining if an umbrella organization is eligible to make an application to open an additional school.

  1. Umbrella organizations are allowed to make an application to open an additional school during the September cycle after its first school chartered by the City of Milwaukee has received its annual report in August; and
     
  2. All of the schools operated by an umbrella organization that are chartered by the City of Milwaukee have obtained a scorecard total of 70% or more during the previous school year.1
