How are PA cyber charter schools managed?
Unlike public schools, which are overseen by a locally elected boards, the state's cyber charter schools are governed by privately managed boards of trustees who may set their own rules of operation. Charter trustees may have little or no connection to or accountability to the taxpayers in their students ''home" communities. Some charter schools are managed by employees appointed by the board of trustees. However, many cyber charter school boards outsource all aspects of charter school’s operations and management to for-profit firms.
