Charter School Authorization 101

Jan 7, 2022 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for the first installment in a new series of educational webinars hosted by the Keystone Center for Charter Change regarding charter school authorization. Learn from the Pennsylvania school district that authorizes more charter schools than all other school districts in the state combined. This first presentation will look at the role of the charter school authorizer at the School District of Philadelphia, a breakdown of the district’s Charter Schools Office (including vision, mission and values), and a high-level overview of the Charter Performance Framework.

This will be a live only session, so don’t miss this opportunity to hear from experts and ask questions that can inform the authorizing efforts of your school district.
