Charter schools in Pinellas County

Charter schools generally operate independently of the School Board. But since they are funded with public money, the Pinellas County School District exercises some oversight through contracts with each charter. Students pay no tuition.

Each year, charter schools must submit an accountability report and an independent financial audit to the Florida Department of Education.

Pinellas started with five charter schools in 1996 and now has 19. More than 200,000 students attend charter schools this year throughout Florida, up from 118,169 students five years ago.

The state says the schools were created to give families more options and educators more freedom to innovate. Application processes at charter schools are separate from those at traditional public schools.
