For agencies considering authorizing, the Principles & Standards serve as a tool for understanding the complexities of chartering and determining how best to prepare their organizations for this work. NACSA strives to promote quality charter schools and seeks to foster quality authorizing practices as a mechanism for doing so. The Principles &Standards help authorizers improve their practices in ways that enhance charter school quality and student performance.
