FY23 SCSC Start-up Charter Application
Welcome to the 2023 State Charter Schools Commission of Georgia (SCSC) Petition Cycle!
The State Charter Schools Commission for Georgia (SCSC) is a state-level charter school authorizer working in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) under the authority of the State Board of Education (SBOE). The SCSC evaluates charter applications (petitions) to ensure that all charters for state charter schools are consistent with state education goals.
A charter school petition is a proposal to create a new school or renew the charter of an existing charter school. The petition describes the charter school’s mission and proposed operations. For the 2023 cycle, all start-up and renewal charter petitions must be submitted through this online submission system.
Petitions must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on March 17, 2023. The SCSC will not consider petitions received after this deadline. Submitting a petition does not guarantee charter authorization. All petitions and attachments submitted to the SCSC are subject to the Georgia Open Records Act.
