Stargate Governance 101:

When does Stargate's Charter get renewed?  Stargate's Charter agreement with the Adams 12 School District is up for another 5-year renewal in 2014.  The Board and Principal are currently working with the district on an expedited renewal process (the first of its kind) with the District Board of Education.  Once the terms of the contract are agreed upon, the Board and Principal will present to the District Board of Education for final approval.  Currently this is expected to happen in early December.  The School's strong student achievement, consistently stable financials, and the Board's work to increase transparency and collaboration will all be measures of success used to finalize the agreement.
