What is a charter school?
Free & Independent
A charter school is a free public school that is run independently of the school district. Charter schools are given more flexibility in their finances, personnel, scheduling, curriculum, and instruction than a traditional district school.
Schools of Choice
Charter schools are schools of choice; no students are zoned to attend a charter school.
OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS
Charter schools are open to all students in the designated geographic area regardless of race, income, special needs, or previous academic performance.
