Abstract (summary)

This qualitative method with an evaluative case study research design involved exploring the Texas Open-Enrollment Charter Application screening process. Thirteen open-enrollment charter holders and 12 charter application scorers provided data related to their participation in the 2005-2007 Texas Open-Enrollment Charter Application process. Naturalistic inquiry promoted an understanding of the (a) behaviors of open-enrollment charter school applicants during the exploration and application phases and (b) characteristics of charter applicant success during the external review panel evaluation process. The results of the study might be of interest to future charter applicants desiring to create open-enrollment charter schools in Texas, external review panel scorers evaluating open-enrollment charter school applications, and Texas charter school program administrators desiring to leverage the positive traits of the charter application process to promote success.
