The Charter Advisory Committee (CAC) is a state-level body with nine members. Three members are each appointed by the Lt. Governor, Speaker of the House and the Chair of the State Board of Education.
The CAC makes recommendations for approval or denial of charter system petitions, periodically makes recommendations on charter policy, and recommends disbursement of planning grants for charter systems.
The CAC works in cooperation with the Charter Schools Division and assists charter petitioners with innovative education programs and school level governance based on research and model programs. The CAC will also monitor and assist approved charter systems throughout the state.
