Charter School Authorizers
About Florida Charter School Authorizers
Charter School Authorizers are key players in the Florida School Choice effort. As the agents for sponsoring and monitoring Florida's growing number of charter schools, authorizers play a vital role in educating and assisting applicants and new charter schools, developing solid, fair and workable contracts between the district and charter schools, and providing services and monitoring to ensure a quality education in an innovative environment. The Florida Department of Education seeks to support authorizers in these efforts by providing information and answering questions as they arise.
