Event Description

Increase Your Chances of Getting Your Charter School Approved

Many people want to build a better school, and that is why many states allow charter schools. But those who want to start a charter school often do things in the wrong order, running into “chicken and egg” problems – and this often leads to failure.

In this session, with expert speaker Jacob Walker, you will learn a 5-step process for getting your charter school approved. This includes what types of things should be done when first forming your idea and team; then what type of research is needed to help understand the educational, legal, and political environment, and how to make initial choices; then working to gain support; doing deeper planning and writing policies and procedures; and finally officially applying for the charter school.

You will be able to work through the five stages of having a charter school approved, and will understand what obstacles you will probably face. This session has a national scope, with examples from California. It will give you a better chance of success. The session will also include a one page simple-to-follow handout about the five stages of getting a charter school approved.
