Nevada Charter Schools 101

Nevada’s charter schools are state-funded public schools of choice operated by independent entities with their own governing boards. Like other public schools, basic education services are provided free of charge. Charter schools operate under a model of accountability in exchange for some flexibility. They are held to the same academic standards as traditional public schools, but have more flexibility and control over curriculum, staffing, budget, and operations. As of FY 2015, Nevada’s charter schools served 28,432 students, which is 6.2 percent of Nevada’s total public school enrollment.
