Programs & Services

  • There’s no way around it. Applying for a charter is hard work. Successful applications are hundreds of pages long and often the product of years of research and development.
  • The Charter Center’s Certification Unit provides in-depth technical assistance to ensure that your school complies with all New York State and Federal teacher certification regulations.

Issues & Research

Charter schools are public schools, but their access to public facilities is limited and tenuous. In New York City, over 60% of charter schools are presently allowed to use school district buildings, typically through co-location with district schools. Other charter schools dip into their operating funds to pay for rent or mortgages in privately-owned buildings.
