Multiple Charter Authorizing Options. Policy Guide
O'Neill, Paul T.
National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NJ1)
"Multiple authorizers" refers to situations where more than one entity is able to authorize charter schools in any given community. The presence of multiple authorizers can strengthen a state's charter school sector because a diversity of authorizers can promote professional practices among authorizers and provide checks and balances in charter approval, oversight and renewal decisions. This policy guide discusses the following: (1) Background on Multiple Authorizers; (2) Key Considerations for Policymakers on Multiple Authorizing Options; (3) Recommendations and Best Practices for State Policy on Multiple Authorizers; and (4) Resources and Further Analysis. (Contains 6 endnotes and 8 resources.)
