ALL ABOUT AUTHORIZATION

As autonomous public schools, charter school leaders make many decisions that would be up to district leadership in a traditional school setting.  From choosing the curriculum to hiring the teachers, charter school leaders and boards select their own paths.

Where does oversight come into play?  What impartial body can give you information on how a charter school is really performing?  That is our role– the role of the authorizer.  We provide charter school operators and members of the public with information on the performance — achievement and growth — of each school under our umbrella.  We help charter schools in navigating issues that arise, providing limited technical assistance and training to help each school reach its potential.
