Renewing charter schools have the option to seek renewal from either their local chartering authority (district) or the Public Education Commission (PEC) as the state chartering authority. All renewal applications must be submitted by the first business day in October 2022, to the charter school’s selected chartering authority. In accordance with Subsection A of 220.127.116.11 NMAC, the chartering authority must then rule in a public meeting on the renewal of the application no later than January 1, 2023.
The PEC developed its state charter renewal application kit to assist charter schools in the development of their renewal applications to the PEC.
If you are intending to renew with a district authorizer, you should check with the district on the forms and process that they require.
