What is a Charter School?
Charter schools are tuition free public schools created on the basis of a contract or “charter” between the charter school and a local school board. A charter school has more freedom than a traditional public school in return for a commitment to meet higher standards of accountability. Most charter schools in Wisconsin function as part of the public school district after being authorized by the local board. The staff members remain employees of the District. The charter school students are afforded the same opportunities as the District's other students.
