About Public Charter Schools:
Charter schools are independent public schools allowed freedom to be more innovative, while being held accountable for improved student achievement. They foster a partnership between parents, teachers and students to create an environment in which parents can be more involved, teachers are given the freedom to innovate, and students are provided the structure they need to learn, with all three held accountable for improved student achievement. Though they operate independently of the school district in which they reside, charter schools are public schools because they are: (i) tuition-free and open to every student who wishes to enroll; (ii) non-sectarian, and do not discriminate on any basis; (iii) publicly funded by local, state and federal tax dollars based on enrollment, like other public schools; (iv) held accountable to state and federal academic standards.
