Authorizing Policy Context

In 2013, Idaho modernized its charter school law to put several charter school accountability mechanisms in place, including performance-based contracts. Idaho voluntarily employs strong authorizing practices that mirror those that result from NACSA’s recommended policies—enacting them into law will ensure they continue into the future.
