About SPCSC

 

The State Public Charter School Commission (SPCSC or Commission) is the statewide charter school authorizer whose mission is to authorize high-quality public charter schools throughout Hawaii. The Commission approves quality applications for new charter schools and monitors the performance and legal compliance of existing charter schools.

About Charter Schools

 

In Hawaii, charter schools are public schools operated and managed by independent governing boards. They are innovative, outcome-based public schools operating under a performance contract with the State Public Charter School Commission (SPCSC). Although they are funded on a "per-pupil" basis separately from Department of Education-operated schools, charter schools are open-enrollment public schools that serve all students and do not charge tuition.

About Governing Boards

 

Hawaii's public charter schools are governed by their respective governing boards, volunteer boards that are responsible for the schools' financial, organizational, and academic viability. The membership of governing boards is to be diverse, and board members must bring many different skill sets and experiences in ensuring that their charter school's mission is met.
