Florida school districts will have a new way to track the financial and academic records of charter school operators.
For the first time, a new database is connecting charter schools to who runs them. The goal is to reduce the number of charter schools that close.
The National Association of Charter School Authorizers wants to create a paper trail. The group has launched a database that lists who is operating a school and includes performance data from the website GreatSchools.org.
William Haft with the association says it’s surprisingly difficult to track down who runs a charter school.
