The Arizona State Board for Charter Schools was established in 1994 to authorize and oversee the operations of charter schools. The Board has increased charter schools’ accountability but can further enhance its oversight by continuing to implement its academic performance intervention policy, taking action to address charter holders with poor financial performance, assessing whether it should require charter holders to submit corrective action plans that address a broader range of internal control weaknesses or deficiencies, and establishing an operational framework. Additionally, although the Board provides information about charter schools on its Web site, it can do more to provide comparative information and guidance to better explain academic performance accountability.
