POISED FOR A STRONG START

The Alabama Public Charter School Commission completed its first charter school application cycle and approved its first two charter school proposals (one with conditions) in fall 2016. Alabama is now poised to have its first charter schools open in fall 2017.


NACSA RECOMMENDS

  • Alabama has all of NACSA’s recommended policies in law. NACSA encourages the state to continue with thoughtful implementation and development of high-quality authorizer practices. Strong statutes identified in this report, as well as a robust charter school petition and evaluation process also defined in law, will help Alabama authorizers conduct rigorous front-end quality controls to get this new sector off to a strong start.
