'Unleashing Education from Convention' is more than a slogan, it's the purpose of Minnesota's chartered public-schools!

Minnesota is the "birthplace" of the chartered public-school movement in 1991. Today, Minnesota's 181 chartered public-schools enroll over 67,000 students. Nationally there are over 7,700 chartered public-schools, enrolling over 3.6 million students in 45 states.

The MN Association of Charter Schools (MACS) Association is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization incorporated in 1998 to support the Minnesota's chartered public-schools and the students these schools serve. Our mission is to advocate for fair and just public policies for students, promote innovation, quality and accountability in chartered public-schools, and  promote equitable opportunities and excellence in education for students.

Your contribution will enable us to enhance: 

1.) our support for innovative methods and practices by teachers, and 

2.) provide leadership training for parents & teachers who serve on charter school boards of education. 

The work of MACS is directed by a Board of Directors, and implemented by a four, and volunteers form our member schools who serve on committees, task forces, and working groups.
