Answers About Texas Public Charter Schools

What is a charter school?

Texas charter schools are free public schools, and enrollment is open to all students. They are independently operated schools that run with more flexibility than traditional public schools in exchange for increased accountability.

The “charter” that establishes each school is a contract detailing the school’s mission and methods of assessment. Every public charter school has to be authorized by the state. Authorizers are responsible for holding charter schools accountable for compliance with their operating agreements or “charters.”

Like all public schools, charter schools are:

  • Tuition-free and part of the free public school system
  • Held to state and federal academic standards
  • Open to all students, including those with disabilities
  • Funded primarily through a combination of federal and state tax dollars
  • Not affiliated with or restricted to a particular religious group
