What is a Charter School?

  A public charter is a tuition-free public school that is independently operated and offers acceptance to any kid, and does not base it upon a school district.  The Senate Bill Eight was passed in August of 2011 and among other things, it removed the guard for charter schools to only enroll based of of categories (gifted, gender, disabilities, etc). Charter schools have a contract with a charter school authorizer in which they operate through.  These authorizers are normally non-profit organizations. 

  A charter school has more freedom with how the school is run and what they base their curriculum on. Some base it upon college prep, music, religion, etc and add this knowledge into the basic core classes. They will also have different criteria to graduate depending on what the focus is at the school.

  Charter schools are supposed to allow educators to be the ones overseeing everything  to help ensure students are reaching their full potential of their learning skills. Teachers have more freedom in the way that their classroom is ran.  This allows more possibility  These schools have the option to choose a particular dress code/uniforms, decide their hours of school days, and how they want classes to be taught. 

  Charters are normally smaller schools that allow more one-to-one time between students and teachers to help guarantee your child’s learning and understanding of topics.  There are many charter schools to look into and choose which one your child would do best in.
