SDE: Charter Schools

Charter Schools


 
Charter schools are authorized by the State Board of Education. Local charter schools are funded by local or regional boards of education; state charter schools are funded by the state. They provide small-scale educational programs managed by a governing board comprised of teachers and parents or guardians of the students enrolled in the school and may include community members. Charter schools offer a range of educational programs, small class size, and enhanced teacher-parent communication.
