year zero

Once a charter is approved (conditionally or otherwise), the planning committee is assigned a series tasks and projects they are required to complete before the new school is approved to open. These Pre-Opening Conditions (POC) are designed as a measurement determination of readiness while simultaneously aiding the planning committee in staying on track to the projected opening date. The checklists are provided as a guidance tool for planning committees and/or boards.
