Charter School Review Commission

Per Section 1002.3301, Florida Statutes, the Charter School Review Commission was created within the Department of Education to review and approve applications for charter schools overseen by district school boards. The Charter School Review Commission may solicit and review applications for charter schools overseen by district school boards and, upon the commission approving an application, the district school board that oversees the school district in which the charter school will be located shall serve as sponsor.

Application Process

The Department of Education has contracted with the Florida Institute for Charter Innovation at Miami-Dade College to provide administrative and technical assistance to the commission by reviewing and providing an analysis of charter school applications submitted to the commission.
