WHAT IS COMMUNITY CHARTER SCHOOL
Community Charter Schools are tuition free public schools and enrollment is open to all students. They are independently operated schools that run more flexibility than traditional public schools in exchange for increased accountability.
The Community Charter that establishes each individual school is a contract detailing the schools’ mission, program, performance goals, methods and assessments. Every public school has an authorizer which is subject to state law, maybe a district school board, university, state DOE or non-profit. Authorizers are responsible for holding charter schools accountable for compliance with their operations agreement or charters.
COMMUNITY CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE:
- Tuition free and part of the public school system
- Held to state and federal academic standards
- Open to all students including those with disadvantages and special needs
- Funded primarily through a combination of federal, state and local tax dollars
- Not affiliated with or restricted to a particular religious group.
