Charter Schools Explained:

Charter schools are public schools that must implement open enrollment, employ educators who hold valid teaching licenses, and comply with most of the same regulations as other public schools. The purpose of charter schools is to (1) continue to improve student learning, (2) encourage the use of different and innovative teaching models, (3) create new professional opportunities for educators to design and implement learning programs, (4) increase choice of learning opportunities for students, (5) establish new models of public schools and a new form of accountability, and (6) provide for greater parent involvement.

Charter schools are public or private schools that are exempted from significant state or local rules that normally govern the operation and management of public schools. A charter school is created by a developer as a public or private school, or is adapted by a developer from an existing public school, and is operated under public or private supervision and directions. A charter school operates in pursuit of a specific set of education objectives determined by the school’s developer and agreed to by the public or private chartering agency and provides a program of elementary and secondary education, or both. A charter school meets all applicable federal, health, and local health and safety requirements; and operates in accordance with state law.

There are 2 primary types of charter school:

1. Conversion charter schools
An existing traditional public school can become a charter school if the faculty and parents at the school vote to convert the school to a charter school (subject to approval of their charter petition).
2. Start-up charter schools
Individuals and organizations can submit a petition to start a new charter school from scratch.Charter schools help put the public back in public education by encouraging participation by parents and the local community.Charter schools give principals the authority to manage effectively.Charter schools allow teachers the flexibility to utilize innovative methods to reach all children.

Charter schools are public schools and can not charge tuition.
