Charter school application deadline is approaching


Parents looking to get their child into a charter school for the fall semester only have a few days left to try and make that happen. 

Application deadline to enroll in one of the city’s more than 200 charter schools is April 1. 

Charters are tuition-free schools supported by tax levies that function outside of the education department.

Applications are available on the Charter School Center website at Parents also can access applications directly from the charter school. 

Students are selected through a lottery system. Those who apply after the lottery are typically wait-listed.
