69 Schools “Qualify” To Be Taken Over By The Innovative School District – Not A Single One Is A Charter School

Yesterday, DPI released a list of 69 schools in the state that would qualify for inclusion in the Innovation School District.

The “School Performance Scores” for each of these “chosen” schools ranges from 25 to 40. Actually only one school is below 30.

25 – 1 school
30 – 2 schools
31 – 4 schools
32 – 1 school
33 – 7 schools
34 – 8 schools
35 – 4 schools
36 – 7 schools
37 – 10 schools
38 – 4 schools
39 – 14 schools
40 – 7 schools

AND EVERY ONE OF THOSE SCHOOLS ON THAT LIST IS A TRADITIONAL PUBLIC SCHOOL.

THERE IS NOT A SINGLE CHARTER SCHOOL ON THERE. And there are many who would qualify based on their School Performance Grades and Scores.

In fact, there are five charter schools that have a score below 30.

There are those two virtual charter schools that have not very well in the past, but were renewed by the state for another four years and championed by Mark Johnson. Here are their grades and growth by subset groups.

Here is the data of charter schools versus traditional schools as far as growth is concerned (courtesy of Kris Nordstrom).

So why are there no charter schools designated to be taken over by a failed reform? Ask Mark Johnson.

But he’s unusually quiet right now. I have only received one email from him in the past three weeks.
