Open-Enrollment Charter Application Process
In recent years, Arkansas lawmakers have enacted legislation that has created a more flexible environment for existing and potential charter schools. Still, opening a school is an endeavor laced with logistical challenges.
The Arkansas Public School Resource Center can help you navigate the application and hearing process. Our legal, finance and teaching and learning departments will provide you and your team with the necessary skills and resources to turn your vision into a reality.
Due to the time commitment required during the application process, APSRC limits the number of people who want to participate in our Charter Start-Up Program. If you are interested in opening a high-quality charter school or want to expand your existing organization to Arkansas, please contact our legal staff.
