Freedom and Accountability
How does accountability work for instrumentality charter schools such as the Appleton eSchool in Appleton, Wis.?
District-authorized charter schools in Wisconsin have a contract with their authorizing school district that must be renewed at least every five years. As charter schools, they have increased autonomy and flexibility under the law but are accountable to the district for meeting school performance goals and producing positive student achievement results.
Additionally, an instrumentality charter school is a district-authorized charter school whose personnel are employed by the school district. This is governed by Wisconsin state statutes.
