What is a Charter School?
Charter Schools Defined
A charter school is a free, non-selective public school that operates under a charter (contract) with its authorizer (in LTA’s case, Falcon School District 49). A charter school has more flexibility regarding its mission and corresponding curriculum than a traditional public school, but it is subject to all accreditation requirements.
