Laws Governing Charter Schools

Idaho Public Charter School law Title 33 Chapter 52 includes provisions governing the establishment, legal status, funding, operation and accountability for public charter schools. The legal instrument establishing a charter school is its charter. The charter sets forth the terms under which the school is to operate and be held accountable. Charter schools function as both public schools and independent not-for profit organizations. In Idaho a public charter school is organized and managed under the Idaho Nonprofit Corporation Act. All charter schools must comply with federal and state laws, as well as local ordinances. Charter school developers, operators, and authorizers need to be aware of the full range of obligations applicable to public charter schools.
