Annual Site Visit Report 2009-2010
Annual Site Visit Report 2010-2011
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 of the school, as well as areas where improvement is needed.

Renewal Report (2013-2014)
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 four critical questions: 1) Is this school an academic success?, 2) Is this school a viable organization?, 3) Is this school in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations?, and 4) What are the school’s plans for its next charter term?  The report also contains the Chancellor's recommendation on whether or not the school's charter should be renewed, the length for which it should be renewed (up to five years), and any conditions related to the renewal recommendation.  This recommendation does not become a finalized decision until it is approved by the New York State Board of Regents.
