Renaissance Schools timeline and RFP
Yesterday the District announced the beginning of Renaissance Schools Year III and the call for proposals from potential charter operators. The 89-page Request for Proposals document describes the steps to apply to operate a Renaissance School.
It also gives a timeline for the process this year. Targeted schools and the providers who will compete to operate them will both be announced on February 20. The process for matching schools and providers will start the next day and run until March 22. The School Reform Commission is currently scheduled to vote on the pairings on March 29.
We’re still reading through this document. What items stand out to you? What questions does it raise?
