Charter Schools - Campus Charters

The legislature established campus charters through Texas Education Code, Chapter 12, Subchapter C (Outside Source). These schools are sometimes referred to as district charters. Legislation requires all independent school districts to adopt a campus charter policy.

NEW - A presentation is available for school districts interested in authorizing campus charters. Click on the eligibility for the 2016-2017 Public Charter School Program Start-Up Grant (PDF) for more information.

Local school districts award and oversee campus charters. To learn more about a specific campus charter or for a list of campus charters in your area, please contact the school district.

A list of all campus charters is available in AskTED. Choose "Charter School Reports" under "Select Category", and choose "All Active Campus Charters."
