Charter schools are public schools that are liberated from some of
the traditional school regulations required by the state. These
schools are bound by charter agreements granted by local school
boards. If they don't meet the requirements of their charter, they
can be shut down. Charter school enrollment is voluntary and is not
governed by neighborhood boundaries, which means your child can
choose to attend any charter school within your district, or outside
your district, so long as there is space available. Schools that are
in high demand usually have a lottery to determine who will be
eligible to attend.
If you want to learn more about charter schools, take a look at
information provided by
Division of Non-Public Education (DNPE) - Office of Charter Schools
Another great source is
GreatSchools.net. Very detailed information
about each school, public and private alike, compete with parent
reviews and a school comparison tool. This is a great resource when you
are unsure where to educate your child.
