Annual Site Visit Report 2007-2008
Annual Site Visit Report 2011-2012
The Annual Site Visit report describes what the reviewers saw at the school -- what life is like there. The report identifies some of the strengths in the school, as well as areas where improvement is needed. The Office of Charter School visits each school at least once in their first, second & fourth year of operation and generates a report of findings. The State Education Department (SED) visits schools in their third year of operation. SED visit reports are not included below. Please visit their website for more information.

Annual Comprehensive Review (ACR) 2012-2013
Annual Comprehensive Review (ACR) 2013-2014
The Annual Comprehensive Review (ACR) investigates three primary questions: is the school an academic success; is the school an operationally and fiscally sound, viable organization; and is the school in compliance with its charter and all applicable laws and regulations. To ascertain matters of sustainability and strategic planning, the Office of School Design and Charter Partnerships (OSDCP) team inquires about the school’s plans for its next charter term. This review is conducted by analyzing student performance data and collecting and evaluating school-submitted documents during the academic school year, and in some cases, visiting the school. The ACR report outlines evidence found during this review.

DOE Progress Report 2006-2007 
DOE Progress Report 2007-2008
The performance and progress outcomes on these reports were generated from New York State testing data and student attendance. Because the report cards for charter schools do not include results of the learning environment surveys, it would be inaccurate to make direct comparisons with DOE public schools. 

Renewal Report 2010-2011
The renewal report describes the performance of a charter school over the course of its charter on academic achievement, educational environment, financial/organizational viability, and board capacity.  Findings from a multi-day site visit conducted at the school are also described in the report. A renewal report answers three critical questions: 1) Is this school an academic success, 2) Is this school a viable organization and 3) Is this school in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations?  The report also contains the Chancellor's recommendation on whether or not the school's charter should be renewed and the length for which it should be renewed (up to five years).  This recommendation does not become a finalized decision until it is approved by the New York State Board of Regents.
