A charter school is a public school that operates under a contract, or charter, entered into between the school's organizer and a charter school authorizer (sometimes referred to as a charter school "sponsor"). Under Indiana Code § 20-24, charter schools are established to serve the different learning styles and needs of public school students, to offer them appropriate and innovative choices, to afford varied opportunities for professional educators, to allow freedom and flexibility in exchange for exceptional levels of accountability, and to provide parents, students, community members, and local entities with an expanded opportunity for involvement in the public school system.
