Through legislation in 1994, the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools (“Board”) was created. The Board is a charter authorizer responsible for overseeing public charter schools that operate under a contract with the Board. Overseeing more than 550 charter schools, the Board is the largest charter school authorizer in Arizona and is one of the nation’s largest independent state authorizers.
In support of our mission to improve public education in Arizona, the following are the Board’s three strategic goals:
-The Board will approve quality applications and grant charters to qualified applicants.
-To increase the quality of the Board’s portfolio of charter schools by monitoring academic performance and fiscal and contractual compliance.
-Promote the Board’s mission in providing quality educational choices.
