Application Basics

Applications for startup charter schools can vary depending on whether the application is to a local district authorizer or directly to the Alabama Public Charter School Commission. Authorizing districts issue a request for proposals (RFP) to solicit applications meeting the unique needs or parameters the district sets forth in the RFP. However, all applications have three primary sections: 

  1. Educational Program Design and Capacity

  2. Operations Plan and Capacity

  3. Financial Plan and Management Capacity

Aspiring applicant should identify whether their desired location is within the boundaries of a district authorizer. If so, applications must be submitted to the district authorizer in accordance with their timelines and requirements. Currently, the following districts are registered as authorizers in Alabama: 

  1. Athens City

  2. Birmingham City           

  3. Greene County

  4. Macon County

  5. Montgomery County
