We are pleased to announce that the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) has completed its assessment of Buckeye Community Hope Foundation's Education Division and assigned it the highest charter school sponsor rating of "exemplary."
The new assessment - commonly referred to as the Sponsor Performance Review, or SPR - was rigorous, and focused on three key areas: compliance; quality authorizer practices; and, school academics. BCHF earned scores of 100, 94.5 and 85.7, respectively, for an overall score of 93.4.
In additional to a perfect compliance score, BCHF earned the highest rating in five of six quality practices categories. Reviewers noted BCHF's commitment to self-evaluation and improvement, as well as significant staff expertise. BCHF will work to maintain its high compliance and quality practices scores, while improving its school academic performance score through the significant efforts of its School Improvement Team.
Schools sponsored by BCHF may receive special incentives reserved exclusively for charter schools sponsored by "exemplary" authorizers through legislation currently under consideration by the Ohio House and Senate. BCHF was also recently assessed by the Cleveland Transformation Alliance - the first sponsor to go through the rigorous process -- which recommended to ODE that Buckeye Community Hope Foundation continue to sponsor charter schools in Cleveland. We are very proud of our team of dedicated, knowledgeable staff with diverse expertise.
Every member of the team contributes to BCHF's success, which ultimately benefits all our sponsored schools and the students they serve.
