It includes academic achievement, college and career readiness, and graduation rates.
Those scores indicate four charters have done worse than KCPS in three of the last four years, one of which is Hogan Prep Academy.
"We've had our growing pains with our middle school and with our elementary school because they are newer," Hogan Prep Superintendent Danny Tipton said.
Executive Director of the Missouri Charter Public School Association Doug Thaman said students at new schools may need more help succeeding.
"What you find is that students come in and they're several years below grade level and it takes a while to bring them up to grade level," Thaman said.
One of the other schools that underperformed is Benjamin Banneker Charter Academy of Technology (BBCAT).
On Monday, its sponsor, the University of Central Missouri, said it will not renew its charter with BBCAT, citing the school's APR percentages, failure to meet some criteria, poor retention rates, and failure to implement significant teaching or learning initiatives since its last renewal.
Some say there's no reason a charter school should be struggling.
"We shouldn't have any struggling charter schools. And if they are struggling, why are they expanding?" Bedell questioned.
Others say it's still important to have the option.
Levette Amerson works at UA as the middle school assistant principal and sends her four children to the school.
"If you're living where maybe a district is failing, you should have an opportunity to attend a school that is successful," Amerson said.
Bedell sees UA as a good example of charter school success.
"We need to be figuring out what is it that you are doing and how we can replicate that," he said.
Last year, UA set a record of $6.6 million in college scholarship money awarded to its senior class. That averages out to roughly $160,000 per student.
"I never thought of an African American community coming together like this and having so many successful black people come out of a charter school," Gravely-Moss said.
