What is a Public School?
The term ‘public school’ means any school directly supported in whole or in
part by taxation. The term ‘nonpublic school’ means any other school which is
accredited or which uses licensed practitioners as instructors.
What is a Charter School?
A charter school is an independently run public school granted greater flexibility in its operations in return for greater accountability for performance. The “charter” establishing each school is a performance contract detailing the school’s mission, program, students served, performance goals, and methods of assessment.
What is an E-School?
An e-school, or virtual school, is an educational institution that offers courses either primarily or entirely online. E-schools have a variety of course structures ranging from fully independent, self-paced courses to instructor-led, semester-based courses. E-school courses can range in size from 20 students to several hundred.
