What is an authorizer?
Authorizers are the entities that decide who can start a new charter school, set academic and operational expectations, and oversee school performance.
In Minnesota, an authorizer may be a traditional school district, a non-sectarian non-profit organization, a college or university, or a new nonprofit created for the sole purpose of authorizing schools (known as single-purpose authorizers). Click here for a current list of Minnesota Authorizers.
