At the district level, charters are not rated and are identified with the label Charter. At the school level, these schools can be rated Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Low-performing, or can be evaluated under the alternative education procedures if appropriate. The first year of operation for a charter is a benchmark year and any schools in a first-year charter are Not Rated (NR). This is shown as NR: Charter (New). If a charter school has insufficient data to be evaluated for a rating, the rating label for the school is NR: Charter (ID).
