Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify the financial and logistical advantages and disadvantages to be realized by public school districts in California, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas through the ownership of charter schools. A policy review was completed examining relevant state statutes, department of education administrative rules, and school board policies in each of the four states included in this study. Interviews were completed with the chief financial officer, or their designee, from school districts in each of the four states using a series of structured interview questions. Interviews were conducted over the phone and data was recorded via detailed notes or recordings with transcripts created. Data from the policy review and structured interviews were analyzed using the constant comparison method in order to answer each of the four research questions. The analysis was used to create a comprehensive listing of fiscal and logistical advantages and disadvantages associated with charter school ownership by traditional public school districts.
