Event Details

Are you interested in operating a high quality public school in Tennessee?


The Department of Education, the Achievement School District and the Tennessee Charter School Center are hosting two part training sessions in Memphis and Nashville in September and October 2013.


The first session will be geared toward applicants who have not yet drafted an application or whose previous applications to open a charter school in Tennessee were unsuccessful. The time from conception to submission of a successful charter school application is usually at least 18 months. This first session will cover:

- The education landscape in Tennessee,

- What it takes to operate a successful public charter school, and

- The application process.


The second session, in October, will be geared toward applicants with fairly well-developed applications and leadership development plans, who plan to submit applications in April 2014, to open schools in the fall of 2015. This session will provide:

- Application review exercises (norming on quality),

- Peer feedback on application drafts,

- Legal and operational training for further application and leadership team development.
