Santa Fe Public Schools is moving forward with a plan to set up performance compacts with the district’s four charter schools in an effort to provide greater transparency and set clear goals for the schools.

The compacts would be specific to each of the schools — the Academy for Technology and the Classics, Monte del Sol Charter School, Tierra Encantada Charter School at Alvord, all 7-12 schools, and Turquoise Trail Charter School, an elementary. The agreements would help prepare the schools and the district for charter renewals, coming up in 2015.

    SFPS is a dysfunctional mess. Boyd's "reform" methods of running schools like sweatshops, treating employees like disposable dirt, privatizing everything, bloating administration, and making test scores the be-all and the end-all is not working for our kids. The last thing we need is SFPS meddling in our charter schools. We are happy with them the way they are. Hands off, Boyd. We have seen the disastrous effects of your principal contracts on our schools, and we are about to see more and worse. We chose charter schools for our kids because we wanted to get off the testing treadmill and into a culture of learning.

    What Boyd is really after is the Railyard property that Tierra Encantada sits on. I hope the Tierra Encantada community is ready to stand up for their school, because Boyd is about to make a grab for the real estate and try to close the school. Stand strong, Tierra Encantada. It would be a terrible mistake for SFPS to sell the TE property--and do what with the money, hire more 6-figure administrators?

    TE's "F" rating is meaningless. I attended their open house, and I have never seen a more engaged school community. The "F" is pure and simple racism.
