A charter school that receives three consecutive grades of "D", two consecutive grades of "D" followed by a grade of "F", or two nonconsecutive grades of "F" within three years must select one of the following corrective actions:
- Contract for educational services to be provided directly to students, instructional personnel, and school administrators;
- Contract with an outside entity that has a demonstrated record of effectiveness to operate the school;
- Reorganize the school under a new director or principal who is authorized to hire new staff; or
- Voluntarily Close.
The following charter schools are subject to the requirements above. The list below is based on the release of 2012-13 school grades.
