|Welcome to the ECS State Policies for
Charter Schools Database!
This database contains information about the state policies for
charter schools in each state. From this database, you can generate
profiles of the state policies for charter schools in individual
states, and view predetermined
reports on state policies for charter schools.
At the present time, 39 states, the District of Columbia and
Puerto Rico have enacted charter school laws, so this database
contains information only for them. It does not contain any information
for the 11 states that have not enacted charter school laws.
Maintenance of this database is a collective effort between ECS and the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. Please contact
Jennifer Thomsen (303-299-3633 or firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or comments about the database. (Last updated in October 2010)
In compiling the information for this database we
reviewed each states statutes and administrative
codes concerning charter schools.
