Wisconsin Charter Schools, 1998. Bulletin No. 99069.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This document presents the most current and complete information about charter schools in Wisconsin. It describes the purpose of charter schools in the state and how they are constructed to achieve their goals. It discusses charter-school history, sponsorship, legal status, what charter schools can and cannot do, organization and governance, teaching requirements, funding, and accountability. The publication examines all 34 charter schools in Wisconsin. Each profile features the name and address of the school, the school district, and the district administrator. Tables of enrollment data are featured for 17 of the schools, all of which opened prior to 1998. The tables compare the charter school to its school district and include information on the 1997-98 student population, grades and total enrollment, and gender and race of students. Tables also provide numbers of students who are at-risk, learning disabled, emotionally disturbed, physically handicapped, and receiving free or reduced-price lunch. The overviews examine issues of technology, work experience, personal and social development, employability, basic philosophies, academics, advisory services, core knowledge, and team teaching. Comparative information on charter schools offers insights on curriculum/instruction programs, populations and locations, schedules, and administrative information. Four appendices give further information on charter-school law and other matters. (RJM)
