2018 Petition Cycle

The State Charter Schools Commission of Georgia (SCSC) is pleased to announce a new and improved Petitioner Boot Camp and application process! To assist petitioners in preparing for the 2018 application cycle, the SCSC is adjusting the application submission timeline so as to provide new opportunities for petitioners to receive feedback directly from the SCSC before submitting an “official” petition in the spring.

The 2017 SCSC Petitioner Boot Camp on September 28th will provide prospective petitioners a first-hand opportunity to learn more about the SCSC’s revised petition process. The Boot Camp will address the most common roadblocks to petition approval, including building board capacity, identifying a facility, and developing a sound budget. First-time petitioners and those who wish to learn more about the charter school landscape are invited to attend a pre-session before the main event. Attendees are eligible to participate in the SCSC’s new Early Feedback Program and win admission to the 2018 Georgia Charter Schools Association Conference! Lunch will be provided. Register for the boot camp here.
