About the Public Charter School Alliance of South Carolina

  Board of Directors | Bylaws | Staff

altBy supporting our member schools, we work to inspire innovative, high quality, public education across South Carolina. 

The Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization with membership open to public charters schools and public charter school supporters including families, community leaders, and business leaders. Since our inception in 2001, a dedicated group of staff members, volunteers, and member schools have worked for significant legislative change to benefit South Carolina's charter public schools and to develop resources and supports for South Carolina's charter schools. Our strategic plans call for developing critical resources and powerful new ways to advocate for public charter schools in South Carolina.
