The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) is a nonprofit membership association of educational agencies across the country that authorize and oversee charter public schools. NACSA welcomes and serves the needs of the full range of chartering authorities: local school boards and districts of all sizes, state boards and departments of education, universities and colleges, municipal bodies, and independent chartering boards. All of these types of institutions are represented in NACSA’s membership, which currently oversees over 40 percent of the nation’s charter schools.
In addition, NACSA welcomes non-charter-authorizing organizations and individuals as Associate Members. Click on "Join Us" to download our Membership or Associate Membership Form.
