About NACSA and Our Work
At the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA), our goal is to double the number of students in quality charter schools by 2025. To do this we focus on strengthening charter school authorizing – the organizations, people, and policies behind charter schools. If and how well authorizers fulfill their responsibilities directly shapes the quality of public schools available within a community.
That’s why we work with authorizers across the country to develop, implement, and maintain rigorous authorizing practices. We provide trusted, independent policy resources to build state and city foundations where charters can thrive. We conduct research to build a strong evidence-base for key decision-makers. To best utilize our national voice, we are preparing to issue a new call to action for authorizing and the charter community that fosters more diverse, innovative, and equitable charter growth.
Because every charter school has an authorizer, our work is making a difference for millions of students nationwide. There is no organization better poised to have this kind of impact.
