THE OFFICE OF CHARTER SCHOOLS IS COMMITTED TO TRANSPARENCY
Authorizing, Oversight, Renewal
Margret Spelling, Former U.S. Secretary of Education:
"[Authorizers] are responsible for approving new schools, monitoring schools' compliance with applicable laws, providing technical assistance, and evaluating school's performance. As such, authorizers are in a powerful position to close ineffective schools and champion the successful ones so that they can serve as models to others."
