What is a Charter School?
In the early 1990s, a small group of educators and policymakers came together to develop the charter school model on the premise of parental choice, achievement, and innovation. Minnesota’s legislature passed the first charter law in 1991, and the first charter school opened in 1992.
In Minnesota, charter schools are tuition free independent public schools that are open to and welcome all students, no matter ability or need, and are governed and operated jointly by licensed teachers, parents and community members.
