How to Become a School Member

 

The Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools (OAPCS) is a non-profit, non-partisan and independent membership organization dedicated to the enhancement and sustainability of quality charter schools through standards, values, best practices, business and financing resources and technical assistance programs. Charter schools are a major element of public education reform in the United States, and Ohio has the fifth-largest charter school enrollment in the nation. OAPCS emphasizes the need for excellence among Ohio’s public charter schools, with a credo of quality that includes standards and principles for its members, ultimately leading to the Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools’ certification of qualified schools.
