    Welcome to the Delaware Charter School Office
    Delaware's Charter Schools were created to improve student learning; encourage use of different and innovative or proven school environments and teaching and learning methods; provide parents and students with improved measures of school performance and greater opportunities in choosing public schools within and outside their school districts; and to provide for a well-educated community.
     
    The Delaware Department of Education is the authorizer for 22 charter schools - meaning that it is responsible for approving, monitoring, renewing, and, if necessary, closing charter schools who received their charters from the State of Delaware.
