Will APS Become A Charter System

Options weighed for Atlanta school system structure

School Choice
Fulton County Schools

tlanta Public Schools is beginning to consider whether it will become a charter system or choose a different operational model.

The city school board heard about their options during a presentation Monday from Louis Erste, the Georgia Department of Education’s associate superintendent for policy and charters.

All of Georgia’s school systems must decide by June of 2015 whether to maintain the status quo, become a charter system or adopt a different educational reform model.

Charter systems gain more school-level authority and accountability, and in exchange the school district must meet benchmarks for student achievement.
