Charter Renewal

About Charter Renewals

The documents in the Renewal Toolkit were created to assist you in the creation and submission of your school’s charter renewal application with Albuquerque Public Schools (APS). 

The APS Office of Innovation and School Choice will form a renewal team of seven members to review the renewal application and develop a consensus recommendation for action to the Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education.  The APS Board of Education will make a final determination on the renewal and may decide to renew, renew with conditions, or deny. 

Charter School Authorizers

Charter schools that are up for contract renewal have the option to seek renewal from either their local chartering authority (district) or the state chartering authority, Public Education Commission (PEC). All renewal applications must be submitted on October 1st of the year prior to when the contract expires. In accordance with Subsection A of 6.80.4.13 NMAC, the chartering authority must then rule in a public meeting on the renewal of the application no later than January 1st of the fiscal year in which the charter expires.

About the Renewal Application

The APS Charter Renewal application consists of three parts and includes an Appendix.

    1. Part 1- Executive Summary;
    2. Part 2- Record of Performance (School Self-Report)
    3. Part 3- Plans for the Next Charter Term (Self-Study); and
    4. Appendix - school provides: Documents to be notarized (Petition of Support from Employees and Petition of Support from Households), Lease documentation, Performance Framework Reports and Amendment Requests.

The Renewal Rubric, which is used to evaluate applications is included in the Renewal Toolkit.
