WHAT IS A CHARTER SCHOOL SYSTEM?

A charter school system is a local school district that operates under the terms of a charter contract between the State Board of Education and the local Board of Education. They system receives broad flexibility in the form of waivers of certain state laws, rules, and guidelines in exchange for greater accountability for increased student performance and an emphasis on school-based leadership and decision-making.
