The Indiana Public Charter Schools Association (IPCSA) is hosting Charter 101, a basic introduction to the process of starting a charter school in Indiana, on March 7, 6 p.m., at the IPCSA office, 407 Fulton St., Suite 301. There is no charge to attend this session.
“Starting a charter school is a rigorous and daunting process requiring a team effort, diverse skills and talents, commitment and hard work. It is imperative that school developers understand the attributes of a quality school and build a strong foundation from the beginning,” says Russ Simnick, president of IPCSA.
“The Indiana Public Charter Schools Association is committed to the development of high-performing public charter schools and offers Charter 101 as an introduction to these processes,” Simnick adds.
Some of the topics to be covered during the free session include Indiana’s charter school law, the relationship between the authorizer and organizer, funding and timelines. Light appetizers will be served.
