What Is A Charter School

Charter schools are free (no tuition) public schools of choice funded by the state, but not supported by local tax revenues. They have a specific educational vision and emphasis not found in the other local public schools. Charter schools give families choice in education and encourage healthy competition. Because they are authorized by the state, charter schools are accountable to students, parents, and communities in the same ways as other public schools.
