Mission Statement / Programmatic Model:
100% of SciTech Chargers will be academically, socially, and emotionally prepared to succeed in top high schools, access a full range of life opportunities, and accept the power and responsibility to shape their lives, their community, and their world.
Most New Orleans public schools are charter schools, public schools governed by non-profit boards. Each board is given a contract to operate their charter school for a number of years. When the contract is up for renewal, the Orleans Parish School Board or Louisiana Department of Education uses school performance to determine if the contract should be renewed. If the school hasn’t demonstrated acceptable performance, it may close at the end of the school year, or be taken over by a new non-profit board.Letter Grade: D
Renewal Year: Winter 2020-2021
