Through the California Department of Education’s Public Charter Schools Grant Program, The Learning Collective has conducted external reviews of 77 charter schools from 2015-2020. 13 of those reviews were remote as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Going beyond the requirements by the California Department of Education, we have added a half-day strategic planning session which has proven to be invaluable to the schools. Watch these video testimonials from principals.

The Learning Collective’s external review process consists of a 2.5 day on-site (or remote) review; two days of information gathering (classroom observations with instructional leaders, administrator and teacher interviews, document review) and a 1/2 day strategic planning session (in which TLC presents the findings from the previous two days and a team from the school prioritizes next steps stemming from the findings). TLC then follows up the on-site visit with a written report (sent to the school) one week after the visit.
