Index of Essential Practices - National Association of Charter School Authorizers

We know what practices are critical to fostering high-performing charter schools. We recognize our duties to ensure the autonomy of the schools we oversee, to protect the rights of students and the public, and to close schools that are not living up to our expectations. The Index of Essential Practices details 12 practices, derived from NACSA's Principles & Standards for Quality Charter School Authorizing, which are critical to fulfilling the responsibilities of an authorizer. It is meant to help strengthen authorizer practices and policy throughout the country. The Index also serves as an important tool for authorizer self-evaluation.

Authorizers play a vital role within the charter school community.

DSST (standardized test) DSST (formerly DANTES Subject Standardized Tests) are credit-by-examination tests originated by the United States Department of Defense's Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) program.

DSST (standardized test)

The program is an extensive series of 38 examinations in college subject areas that are comparable to the final or end-of-course examinations in undergraduate college courses. These tests are frequently used in conjunction with CLEP (College Level Examination Program) tests by students pursuing college degrees in non-traditional formats.

Whereas CLEP tests are almost exclusively used for lower level credit at regionally accredited institutions, DSST's are available for both upper and lower level credit.

Statement of beliefs of the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance (OCRT)

The importance of faith/belief statements: We feel that every denomination, para-church organization, religious group, and religious web site should consider creating a statement of belief or faith and displaying it prominently. This is particularly important among Christian groups who may use the term "Christian" to refer to only the Roman Catholic Church, or only to Evangelical Protestantism, or to the full range of Christian denominations and beliefs, or to some other subset of the religion.
