Charter Schools

Charter schools are public schools operating without many regulations traditional schools must follow. Charters are granted for five years with re-authorization required for extension. There are two types of charter schools in Arkansas: open-enrollment and conversion.

Open-enrollment charters are run by a governmental entity, an institution of higher learning or a tax-exempt nonsectarian organization. They can draw students from anywhere in the state.

Conversion charters are traditional schools converted by a school district. They can draw students only from within the district boundaries.
