Annual Authorizer Fee Report
The State Board serves as the LEA of its authorized charter schools in accordance with T.C.A. § 49-13-142(g) and, therefore, is required to fulfill the same responsibilities of all other school districts in the state of Tennessee in addition to fulfilling its responsibilities of being a charter school authorizer. In accordance with T.C.A. § 49-13-118, the State Board collects an annual authorizer fee from each of its authorized charter schools to fund its work as a charter school authorizer and an LEA.
By December 1, of each year, the State Board shall publicly report the total amount of authorizer fees collected in the previous school year and the authorizing obligations fulfilled using the fee.
