The Idaho State Department of Education is hosting a Charter Start 101 workshop for parents, educators, and others interested in learning more about what it takes to start a public charter school in Idaho on September 13-14, 2012, in Boise.
Public charters schools are free public schools that are open to all students. A public charter school gives parents the choice of sending their children to a school that uses innovative methods to provide a quality education in a smaller, more responsive learning environment.
This two-day workshop will be held September 13-14, 2012 at the Idaho State Department of Education offices at 650 West State Street, Boise.
Charter Start 101 workshops provide hands-on technical assistance for all new charter developers and any individual or group interested in a public school conversion. The workshop is designed to support public charter school developers at all stages – from vision to implementation.
Workshop attendance is a statutory requirement for all individuals and groups developing a charter school. This free workshop will be from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days at the State Department of Education. Registration starts at 7:45 a.m. on the first day. All participants will receive a charter start resource guide and a certificate of participation.
