Authorizer Practices: What’s Working and What’s Not

This report provides a thematic qualitative analysis of 50 authorizer evaluations NACSA has completed since 2009. It identifies common strengths and weaknesses and provides empirically-based and detailed findings on specific practices authorizers are using across the country.

Authorizers, NACSA, and other entities can use these findings to design better technical assistance, professional development, tools, templates, and other approaches that ultimately lead to a stronger sector of charter schools.
