About Charter Schools

 

Charter Schools Program Office

Charter Schools are independent public schools that are free from rules and regulations that apply to traditional public school districts unless specifically identified in charter school law.  In exchange for flexibility, charter school sponsors are to hold the schools accountable for results. Charter schools are non-sectarian, do not discriminate in their admission policies and may not charge tuition or fees.

 

Any student residing in the Kansas City 33 School District or the St. Louis Public School District may choose to attend a charter school in the city in which they reside. There is no cost to parents for sending their children to a charter school.

As of Fall 2013 there are 21 LEAs in Kansas City operating within 35 buildings and 17 LEAs in St. Louis operating within 25 buildings.
