INTENT OF CHARTER SCHOOLS

It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting the Charter Schools Act of 1992 to provide opportunities for teachers, parents, pupils, and community members to establish and maintain schools that operate independently from the existing school district structure, as a method to accomplish the following:


  • Increase learning opportunities for all pupils, including personalized learning experiences for pupils who are identified as academically low and high achieving

  • Encourage the use of different and innovative teaching methods

  • Create new professional opportunities for teachers, including the opportunity to be responsible for the learning program

  • Provide parents and pupils with expanded choice in the types of educational opportunities that are available within the public system

  • Hold the schools accountable for meeting measurable pupil outcomes, and provide the schools with a method to change from rule-based to performance-based accountability systems

  • Provide competition within the public school system to stimulate continual improvements in all public schools
