Quality Authorizing Standards

On June 17, 2021, the SCSC and GaDOE shared a draft set of principles designed to evaluate Georgia charter authorizing bodies on authorizing practices and opened them to public comment. The standards are informed by both the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) Principles & Standards for Quality Charter School Authorizing and Georgia laws and rules.

The SCSC and GaDOE Charter Division worked together to update the principals based on feedback received from stakeholders and the final set of principles and standards were adopted by the State Board of Education at their December 9, 2021 meeting.
