Charter Schools

Equity

Charter schools are free, open-enrollment schools that, just like all public schools, are required by law to serve all students. The DOE is committed to working with charter schools to ensure that they are meeting the needs of all students, especially the highest need students requiring special education services, students who are English Language Learners, students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and other underserved or at-risk populations.
