STARTING A CHARTER SCHOOL

CREATE A PLAN

Starting a charter school requires more than innovative ideas:  it takes time, money, and persistence; and it means building a collaborative team of capable founders committed to the ideas and the process.

To begin …

  • Imagine what a high-quality, innovative public school  would look like.
  • Identify the defining characteristics of this school.
  • Ask if the community needs this new public education option.

We are happy to assist you in making your vision for a new public school a reality.

If you contact us, we’ll arrange an initial consultation to review the process of founding a new public charter school in Maine.
