District Charter Application Process

Districts may consider authorizing charter schools to provide innovative new educational opportunities to students or to serve the students who are stuck in district schools that have traditionally underperformed. 

Districts may either request technical support and guidance or contract with the Department to run a charter school application process on their behalf.  Any district that contracts with the Department will still retain full authority to choose which charter schools are approved.  Districts with questions about how the Department can help support their District Charter Application Process should contact David.Shepard@la.gov
