State Policy

There are no silver bullets.

Great charter schools start with great education policy.


A New Direction

NACSA believes that policies can and should promote charter school excellence. As of 2017, NACSA no longer publishes State Policy Analysis rankings, but we remain committed to helping states establish and improve strong charter laws and policies. Currently, we are developing new ways to share information on states’ charter school policy landscapes. Additionally, we are updating and streamlining the many policy resources we have available to you. So, we thank you for your patience with our website as we transition into a new chapter of our work. If you have any policy-related questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Policy Director, Veronica Brooks-Uy.

State Policy Resources

Our library of resources is getting a refresh in 2018! In the meantime, please feel free to browse a list of our most popular topics or search our policy archives.
