Title: First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School  – Application for Charter Renewal


Term: July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2027


Amendment: None


Description: First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School applied for renewal of its charter in the 2021-22 school year. A renewal evaluation of this charter school was completed by the Charter Schools Office in 2021-22, and the latest Annual Charter Evaluation with renewal recommendation was completed in 2022 (ACE-R - Renewal Recommendation). The CSO has recommended a five-year renewal with school-specific conditions, effective July 1, 2022. The renewal includes school-specific conditions related to: (i) the submission of a conflict of interest policy that is in compliance with the Nonprofit Law and the Ethics Act and the submission of conflict waivers if legal counsel for the Charter School also represents the management organization for the Charter School, (ii) the implementation of a lottery process that is in alignment with their charter agreement; and (iii) ongoing compliance with all student rights during the expulsion recommendation process. The Board of Education will consider this application for charter renewal.
