School Governance Structures Database

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 with questions or comments about the database. (Last updated in October 2010)
