A charter school is a public school operated as a semi-autonomous school of choice authorized by a sponsoring school district, Oregon Department of Education or local university.  A charter school operates under a charter (a contract) between the charter school and its sponsor (authorizer). A public charter school is subject to certain laws (ORS 338) pertaining to  public schools. Charter schools are released from others laws and must operate in a manner consistent with the charter agreement (contract) with their sponsor.
