Celebrate National Charter Schools Week May 9 – 15, 2021


2021 is a year of celebration for Florida charter schools – the 25th anniversary of the passage of the state’s charter school law – in 1996 – and the opening of the state’s first charter school.

 

Since 1996, the number of Florida charter schools has grown to over 687 in 2020-2021, with student enrollment topping 341,900.

 

Over the last twenty-five years, charter schools have immeasurably changed the course of public education and the future of millions of Florida’s children. A special thanks to our valued parent members for your support, dedication, and commitment to your child’s charter school.

 

If your child’s charter school is celebrating in a special way this year, please send us the information and photos to info@floridacharterschools.org.

 

2021 is also the 30th anniversary of the first charter school law – passed in 1992 in Minnesota.
