This webpage has been designed to provide users with access to information relevant to selecting, opening, and operating a charter school.

Charter Schools in Florida are fully recognized as public schools. They are operated by, or organized as, nonprofit organizations typically run by a group of parents, teachers, municipalities, institutions, universities and/or a combination of more than one group.

Charter Schools are funded in part by the Florida Department of Education in the same manner as all other public schools in the state. Additional funding obtained through grants and private donations may also be utilized.
