What is a public charter school?
Authorized under the charter school act of 1992, public charter schools are free, public schools open to all. Many parents are seeking high quality educational choices for their children. Parents want more individualized attention for students. They want greater participation in their children's education, and they have high expectations of personal behavior. Charter schools offer an important innovation in public education. They are performance-based schools that are free from many of the complex regulations that often constrain innovation in traditional programs. In exchange for substantial freedom in governance, programming, staffing, and budgeting, the school is held accountable for student achievement.
