For Parents

Dear Parents,

Some of the most important decisions you will make are about your child’s education. You want your child’s school to meet the same goals of high academic achievement you have set or interests your child has. You may want your child’s school to reflect the values of your family and community. In other words, you want to choose a school that is a good fit for your child. In an increasing number of communities in Florida, parents/guardians have the ability to do just that.

Charter schools are tuition-free public schools of choice. They are free-to-innovate in terms of curriculum, schedule and staff, and in return they are bound by a commitment to higher standards of academic and financial accountability.

Some charter schools offer themed learning approaches focusing on areas such as art, language, science, or technology. Other charter schools provide services to special populations such as students at risk of academic failure or students with disabilities. With the growing trend of charter schools in the state, you are sure to find a school to suit your child.

Use the Charter School Directory link to find a school near you.

School choice gives you more opportunities to achieve your expectations for your child. Armed with options and information, you can be a powerful advocate for your child and for the charter school movement.

The Florida Charter School Alliance is ready to assist in any way we can. If you have questions, concerns, or ideas about charter schools.

Please do not hesitate to contact us.
