Join parents, local organizations, and talented educators at the FREE Fall Charter Startup Workshop, where we will:

  • Share examples of innovative Illinois charter schools,
  • Help you clarify your vision and mission and identify desired outcomes for a potential charter school,
  • Walk you through the charter design and authorization process, and
  • Provide information on startup funding – including the $21 million federal charter startup grant administered by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).

Participants will receive a hard copy of Paving a New Path: A Guidebook for Illinois Charter Public School Development while supplies last.

You can make a difference!
