SECTION 18
CHARTER SCHOOLS

In Alaska, a charter school operates as a school in the local school district except that the charter school is exempt from the local school district's requirements in terms of textbooks, curriculum, and scheduling, and is also exempt from the Alaska statute requiring a chief school administrator. The principal of the charter school is selected by the academic policy committee and selects, appoints, and otherwise supervises employees of the charter school. Charter schools operate under an annual budget as set out in the contract between the local school board and the charter school.

Children with disabilities who attend charter schools, and their parents, retain all rights under Part B. IDEA 2004 requires the local district to serve children with disabilities attending charter schools in the same manner as it serves children with disabilities in its other schools; and to provide federal funds to those schools in the same manner as it provides those funds to its other schools.
