In Alabama, our students' race and social class far too often determine the quality of their school. We must act urgently to rectify this injustice—their futures depend upon it.
NEW SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT
We recruit high-quality charter school operators and develop homegrown leaders to build great schools throughout Alabama.
We provide applicants and operators with expert guidance on technical needs such as developing an application, finding a facility, managing the back-office, and more.
We ensure that parents and communities have access to clear information about school quality and the benefits that other options may present.
We work with policymakers and administrative agencies to ensure that the regulatory landscape is supportive of high-quality charter schools.
