FSBA believes that charter schools can offer enhanced opportunities for students to excel. However, local school boards must have the final decision-making authority over charter schools within the district, including decisions to accept, reject, renew, or terminate the charter contract. In addition, charter schools must be subject to rigorous and uniform federal, state, and local accountability systems, and must demonstrate success if they are to be continued.
