Enrollment & Retention Targets

Amendments to the Charter Schools Act in 2010 require all charter schools to meet enrollment and retention targets for students with disabilities, English language learners, and students eligible for the free and reduced price lunch program. Targets must be comparable to the population of students attending public schools in the district where the charter school is located.

Assigned targets will ultimately be applied to all charter schools either through the application process to establish as a new charter school or through the process to renew a charter.
