Welcome Charter Schools, 

By August 1 of each year, each charter school in New York State is required by law to complete and submit an Annual Report to the NYSED Charter School Office and to the school’s charter entity as per New York State Education Law Section 2857(2)) through this portal. All four authorizers (Board of Regents, SUNY Trustees, NYCDOE, and Buffalo BOE) will access the Annual Reports for the charter schools they authorize directly from this portal. 

Please review the 2018-19 Annual Report Guidelines carefully and submit the first component of the Annual Report no later than 11:59 p.m. on August 1, 2019 to the New York State Education Department's Charter School Office (CSO) and the school’s charter authorizer through this portal. The first component includes basic school information, the school’s progress toward charter goals, fiscal performance data, board of trustee meeting schedule and minutes, and board of trustee membership information (including completed Trustee Disclosure Financial Information Forms). 

All schools must submit the second component of the Annual Report no later than 11:59 p.m. on November 1, 2019.  The information submitted in the second component includes audited financial statements.

Please be reminded that each charter school is required to make the Annual report publicly available by August 1 and post on the charter school’s website. Each school should post an updated and complete version of the Annual Report to include accountability data and financial statements that are not or may not be available until after the August 1 deadline.

If, after reading the guidelines carefully, you have any questions about the required information, format or deadlines for the Annual Report, please contact your authorizer, and then the NYSED Charter School Office if necessary. Thank you for your submission,

NYSED Charter School Office
