Dear Parents/Guardians

As part of our Board of Directors (C.L.A.S.S.) and the school’s administration efforts to keep you informed, my message this month is in regards to the charter renewal process for the 2021-2022 school-year.

Our school, Fannie C. Williams Charter, will be in the renewal cycle in two years (2021-2022). NOLA Public Schools will also reach out to you soon to notify you of this important item on our upcoming calendar.

When we first started as a charter, we were governed by the Recovery School District. As of July 1, 2018, all charter schools are under NOLA Public Schools (OPSB). As part of our New Orleans Public School System, all charter schools participate in a routine evaluation process during the last year of their charter operating agreement, which is usually referred to as “renewal.” The operating agreement is between the school’s charter governing board (C.L.A.S.S.) and the Orleans Parish School Board.

The OPSB will use the Charter School Accountability Framework as the foundation to make its decision regarding our renewal. There will also be a review as to how well we have compiled with federal, state, local laws and policy. Our school performance score (SPS–56.2, D; 2017-2018) will also be paramount in this renewal effort.

Parents can get additional information about OPSB’s renewal standards at the link listed below:

As always, we appreciate your entrusting your child(ren) with us. We will continue to collaborate with parents and the community to make FCWCS a positive place to learn and grow for all children in our care.

–Kelly S. Batiste,
Principal/CEO
