Countywide Charter School Process


Countywide Charter Schools

​A charter petition may be submitted directly to OCBE for a charter school that operates at one or more sites within the geographic boundaries of the county, and offers instructional services not generally provided by a county office of education.  OCBE may only approve a countywide charter school if it finds, in addition to other requirements, that the educational services provided by the charter school will serve a pupil population that will benefit from those services and cannot be served as well by a charter school operating in only one school district in the county.  Additional information on countywide charter schools is provided in the links below.​
