Abstract
Description
Charter schools can discontinue the delivery of services in five ways, primarily depending on the timing of the action (i.e., whether it is sudden and in the middle of a school year or at the end of a school year), and the apparent reason for the disruptions. They are: emergency disruption, closure, non-continuation, non-renewal of charter, and failure to open. Regardless of the type of discontinuation, a number of activities must be completed by a charter school and its board before it closes, including reasonable notification of staff, students, and parents, transfer of students and their records to other schools, and satisfaction of creditors.
