Frequently Asked Questions
What is a charter school?
Charter schools are open to the public, are tuition-free, participate in state tests, employ credentialed teachers, and do not discriminate.
Charter schools are granted greater flexibility in their operations and do not have to adhere to all the regulations imposed upon school districts.
Charter schools, like traditional public schools, are accountable for academic results, and must be able to demonstrate financial and organizational stability.
Will I need to obtain a district transfer?
No. As a school of choice, a release from your district or transfer is NOT required.
Do current students need to fill out a Request for Enrollment?
No, currently enrolled students are automatically re-enrolled for next year. However, parents are asked to complete an Intent to Return Form in January.
Do siblings of current students who are not currently enrolled need to fill out a Request for Enrollment?
Yes. They must follow the same procedure as all new students requesting enrollment, but they will be granted priority if a lottery is to take place for their grade level.
