The Charter Schools Office (CSO) issues Notices of Deficiency to schools regarding significant instances of non-compliance or poor performance that may affect student well-being or access. Notices of Deficiency clarify actions schools must take in order to resolve the deficiency.

For organizational compliance requirements where a charter school is found to be non‐compliant and the non‐ compliance is likely to affect student well‐being or access, the CSO issues a Notice of Deficiency to the school. The CSO may also issue a Notice of Deficiency for a school’s failure to submit documentation necessary for evaluation. A Notice of Deficiency requires action on the part of the charter school to resolve the identified area(s) of non‐compliance. Please find all ACE 2018 related notices below.
