2021-22 Renewal Applications
Schools requesting a charter renewal term beginning on July 1, 2022 must submit a completed application for charter renewal, with the exception of the Benchmark 1 narrative, no later than 5:00 PM EST on August 16, 2021. To determine a school’s eligibility to submit an application, see the list posted on the NYSED CSO website.
The Benchmark 1 narrative, and other supplementary data that the school may choose to present, is to be submitted no later than 5:00 PM EST on October 1, 2021. Prior to that date, the NYSED will provide Benchmark 1 data to the charter school, with the exception of the data required by the NYSED Local Assessment Plan information, which the school will provide in its Benchmark 1 narrative.
Eligible school applicants will submit the complete renewal application solely through NYSED CSO online portal. The NYSED CSO will soon provide details about the renewal process, resources, and its online portal, and post them on the NYSED CSO renewal application information page.
The submitted charter renewal application must be complete and align to the content and format guidelines set forth in the renewal guidance document.
