Fulton County Charter Schools

  • According to the Fulton County Schools Board Policy, the purpose of Fulton's Charter School Portfolio is twofold:

    • To provide high quality, innovative and standards-based opportunities for students.
    • To replicate successful practices throughout the system, thus accelerating student learning.

Our Responsibilities

    • The department administers the General Charter Application process as well as the Request for Charter Petition process.
    • The department monitors and evaluates the operations of charter schools. This includes compliance with applicable laws, un-waived county practices and the performance objectives detailed in the charter contract.
    • Annual evaluations of the charters are regularly given to the governing boards and the Fulton County Board of Education to allow for remediation.
    • Successful practices are disseminated to the system for possible replication.
    • Failed practices that are not remediated are considered when the charter applies for renewal.​
