• 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).
