Mission Statements and Petitioning for a Charter

The first step in opening a new charter school is to present an official petition for charter school as required by states that allow charters. What needs to appear in a petition varies from state to state and therefore should be researched thoroughly. Before a petition can be presented a team must first be assembled to work together in formulating a clear and concise mission statement.

The mission statement becomes the unifier all actions and decisions taken from that point on in petitioning for a charter. Here is an example of a good mission statement.

Our mission is to inspire students, empower parents, and promote a life-long love for learning by creating an environment in which academic success is personalized and achievable for all children.
