Resources for New and Current Charter Schools

New School Development

The Arizona Charter Schools Association is committed to the development of high-performing public charter schools and offers extensive support for teams looking to open a new charter school or expand a current high performing school. Starting a charter school is a team effort that requires a great deal of forethought and hard work before doors open on day one. For individuals or groups interested in petitioning for a new charter school, navigating the requirements of new school development can be arduous.  The founding group must be willing to scrutinize its ability to commit a significant amount of time and energy toward the development of a charter school before embarking on the application process. Find out more about charter schools here.
