Public Charter Schools
The investment projects GreenAccess delivers are Florida public charter schools. Public charter schools are very popular and are among the fastest growing school choice options in Miami, and throughout Florida. Public charter schools operate under a performance contract, or a “charter.” Hence the term charter school. The charter requires the schools be held liable for academic and financial results. Public charter schools guiding ethos: high standards of student achievement.
A public charter school is an independently run, tuition-free public school offering primary and secondary education. Built and managed by a private group, public charter schools receive state government funding. Public charter schools enjoy greater flexibility in operations in return for greater accountability of performance.
