INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Charter School Board is accepting applications for charter operators looking to open new schools.
The board announced Friday that applications should outline plans for their potential schools' academics, operations and finances. The state board will then analyze the applications and the applicants, including reviews of past performance.
The letter of intent must be filed by July 9 and the full application must be submitted by Aug. 6. The board will then conduct interviews with applicants, followed by a series of public hearings in October.
The state charter board has approved 10 schools that will operate around the state for the 2014-15 school year.
