Charter Schools in Nevada are public schools funded by the state. Charter Schools are set up by a committee with a desire to provide an educational situation that better meets the needs of some students. The Nevada State Public Charter School Authority (SPCSA) is the governing board that has adopted standards from the National Charter School Resource Center to ensure these schools are held to high standards and serve students in the best possible manner. There is no charge to attend a charter school although there may be a fee for certain specific items or events. Charter schools must be in traditional “brick and mortar” building or provide “distance education”. A directory of charter schools can be found on the State of Nevada Department of Education website: www.doe.nv.gov/Charter_Schools
