What Is A Charter School?

Charter schools are public schools that operate under a performance contract, or a “charter”, which frees them from many rules and regulations traditional public schools must abide by. As part of the contract, charter schools are strictly held accountable for academic and financial results.

  • Operate under a site-based decision-making paradigm.
  • Possess full contractual and budgetary autonomy.
