START A PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL

In 2013 the Mississippi State Legislature adopted a strong charter school law, and under that law, the seven-member Mississippi Charter School Authorizer Board (MCSAB) was created as the sole authorizing body in the state. If you are interested in starting a public charter school, the Accelerator can support you through technical assistance along the way.

 

DIG INTO THE DETAILS

UNDERSTAND CHARTERS

The Mississippi Public Charter Schools Act of 2013 defines charter schools as public schools that have autonomy over decisions including finance, personnel, scheduling, curriculum, and instruction; are governed by an independent governing board; are nonprofit organizations; and do not charge tuition. There are many misconceptions about public charter schools - dig into the details to determine the opportunity they offer.
