New Schools for Alabama

(205) 936-0932 | Website

Most of the nearly 1,500 public schools in Alabama are operated by one of the state’s 138 school districts. Charter schools account for five of the state’s public schools, which operate with more autonomy than district schools. Charter schools operate under a contract with an authorizer, either the public education authority or a school district. 

Schools chartered by a district have more autonomy than other district schools but are still part of their local district. Currently, six Alabama districts can authorize charter schools. All state-chartered schools in Alabama are authorized by the state’s public education authority and serve as their own Local Education Agency (LEA).

*information up to date as of 2022

“In my opinion, charter schools are taking on a very important role as it relates to providing families with more educational options. I believe they are positively impacting the education system by providing an educational environment that helps all children instead of just a small group. I believe that charter schools understand the importance of providing not just education, but support to its scholars as well as the families involved.”
