 Charter Renewal

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. 

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

The renewal application is divided into three parts:  Part A- Summary Data Report; Part B- School Self Report (performance during the current charter term); Part C- Self Study (proposed charter for the next charter term). The Renewal Application Scoring Rubric is also included in the Renewal Toolkit. 

Please contact Dr. Joseph Escobedo, Senior Director, APS Office of Innovation and School Choice at (505) 880-3790, or with any questions regarding renewal.
