Program Authorization: R.S. 17:3971-4001; Act 18 of the 1997 Regular Session

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

1. The Title 10/Chapter Schools Program will have 9 active charter schools meeting locally determined student learning criteria by FY 1998-99.

1 The Department of Education requires performance indicators to be established by the participating local education agencies which are monitored and evaluated by independent evaluators. The local agencies retain responsibility for implementation.
