JPS Solutions helps charter schools secure full charter renewals from their charter authorizers. In the process, we help charter schools improve and expand their educational programs.

JPS Solutions has helped charter schools achieve renewals for more than a decade. We helped schools across New York State receive charter renewals from each of the state’s charter authorizers. We have also worked with charter schools in New Jersey and across the country, and we are available to consult regarding renewals in states other than New York.

Our approach to helping charter schools achieve renewal is to “meet you where you are” and assist you in proving that you’ve been successful and meeting your authorizer’s requirements. Our services include:

    • Conducting  a thorough analysis of your charter school’s achievements, progress towards meeting goals, “lessons learned” and modifications to the charter made during the charter term
    • Supporting your School Leadership Teams in identifying challenges, creating and/or improving strategies to address them
    • Reviewing and modifying the school’s academic, operational and governance programs and practices for the next charter term
    • Helping charter school leaders communicate effectively with their authorizer throughout the renewal process
    • Preparing and submitting successful renewal charter applications
    • Facilitating “follow-up” communication with  the charter authorizer after submitting the renewal application, including responses to Requests for Amendment/Clarification  and preparation for interviews with the charter school’s Board and Leadership Team.

JPS Solutions is happy to have supported the following charter schools in achieving charter renewals:
