State policymakers are faced with many issues and challenges when it comes to charter school finance and governance. Many state departments of education are expected to provide effective oversight and guidance to new and existing charters, and many charter offices are relied on to assume the dual roles of monitoring and supporting new start-ups as well as implementing processes for chartering "restructuring" schools.
State policy makers must be able to systematically examine their chartering policies with a clear understanding of the conditions and factors that promote success, particularly those related to finance and governance. In addition, they need to know how to best allocate resources to help charter schools thrive and understand how to remove the barriers that often make it difficult for charter schools to succeed and become sustainable.
State policymakers are one of the three key audiences of the National Resource Center for Charter School Finance and Governance. This page is designed to highlight new resources on charter school finance and governance specifically of interest to state policy makers, and to quickly link you to other resources on this Web site of special interest to state policy makers.
