Resources for Developing a Public Charter School

Once Your Charter is Approved - What's Next?

1. Make sure everyone on your charter committee has read your charter and all attachments.

2. Have a charter committee meeting to review the final draft and all attachments. Everyone should be well versed and have time to ask questions.

3. Continue to document student interest in your school.

4. Start working on your presentation of your school for your hearing. Decide who will present and who will be answering questions on the different sections: education, finance, staffing, governance, etc. Work on articulating WHY there is a need for this school in your community in just 60 seconds.
