Starting a new charter school in Utah requires the appropriate documents and training. These documents can also be found on USOE’s website.
This training is for those wishing to open a charter school in the Fall of 2018. The State Charter School Board staff will be providing the mandatory training this year. Please see this Pre Applicant Training Notice for more information. We are excited to be coordinating our trainings with the SCSB staff and will be offering additional workshops and customized pre-applicant training to ensure individuals submit the best applications possible.

The link below is a publication from the Annie E. Casey Foundation offering sensible guidelines for creating new schools. The author, Peter Frumkin, emphasizes that running a charter essentially is running a large organization and that requires strong strategic management skills. He outlines the major tasks to managing a charter, and the most important ways to measure and produce high performance.
