Welcome

Charter schools are independent public schools operated by a non-profit organization. They hire their own teachers, design their own academic program, and control their own finances. They have their own board of directors that make decisions for the school.

All charter schools must provide a curriculum that meets the Florida Standards and Sunshine State Standards. These schools must also hire certified teachers. In Florida, charter schools are accountable to the school district in which they reside for student academic performance and fiscal management, but they are not managed by the district. Parents interested in information about a charter school may contact the school or visit the school's web site.

Non-profit organizations interested in starting a charter school in their community must develop a charter school application and submit it to the district by February 1 of each year for approval by the School Board. Inquiries regarding the development of a charter school may be addressed to:
