Session Description

Online and blended charter schools present unique challenges for authorizers, but few best practices for authorizing these schools have emerged. The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) has engaged a group of nationally-recognized experts to review online and blended charter authorizing practices and make recommendations to authorizers. In this session, the expert panel will discuss findings and recommendations, as well as model statutory language.
