The purpose of this study was to explore and describe charter school constituents’ value of monitoring processes (on-site visit) and monitoring product (report). Every year, a Charter Schools Office monitors five charter schools. The monitoring process includes a one- or two-day on-site visit including interviews, observations and document analysis by two consultants. Data are analyzed and compiled into a monitoring report that includes recommendations for school improvement. This multi-site case study (Yin, 1993) surveyed employees from the charter school office (authorizers), administrators, and school board members regarding the on-site visit and monitoring report to determine their perceived value of monitoring. Recommendations to improve monitoring processes, product utilization, and potential future studies are included.
