I. Charter School Application
Applicants must use the application provided at the link below to submit a Type 1 or Type 3 Charter School Proposal:
*Please note the following additional requirements if applying for a Type 3 charter:
The Terrebonne Parish School Board requires that Type 3 applications are submitted with documented stakeholder approval of the Charter School. Stakeholder approval requires at least 50% of the current stakeholders from each group of stakeholders (students, parents, and teachers) to be in favor of the Charter Application.
Please utilize the attached Type 3 model conversion process instructions provided below.
All staff votes for converting a traditional public school to a public charter school should be transparent and fair and should accurately represent the opinion of school staff. The Department of Education has developed the following model process that districts may assign to all groups interested in applying for a Type 3 charter school. The model process respects the fact that every community is different and that local groups should be empowered to customize the process in a way that works for their community, assuming it meets the basic criteria for a fair and open process.
