What is a Charter School?

       Charter Schools are independent public schools that are free from rules and regulations that apply to traditional public school districts unless specifically identified in charter school law.  In exchange for flexibility, charter school sponsors are to hold the schools accountable for results. Charter schools are non-sectarian, do not discriminate in their admission policies and may not charge tuition or fees.
