Standards and Outcomes

The PCSC holds schools accountable to an established set of academic, operational, and financial standards, called the performance framework. Each school is evaluated against the framework annually.

Performance Framework

Performance Framework
Idaho statute provides an accountability structure for public charter schools and authorizers. At the heart of this structure is a performance framework that includes the indicators, measures, and metrics used to evaluate each school's performance outcomes.

Academic Outcomes

Academic Outcomes
The academic section of the framework focuses on quantitative academic outcomes. It reflects the PCSC's commitment to considering schools' performance in the context of their communities and student demographics.

Operational Outcomes

Operational Outcomes
The operational section of the framework contains measures designed to consider whether schools are operating in compliance with federal and state law, authorizer requirements, and the provisions of their performance certificates.

Financial Outcomes

Financial Outcomes
The financial section of the framework evaluates schools' near-term and long-term sustainability measures. The eight financial measures help evaluate a school's responsible use of public funds by indicating the financial health of the school.
