Commission Schools

Established to oversee new start, revocation, and renewal charter appeals from across Tennessee, the Tennessee Public Charter Commission will serve as an authorizer to any schools that it authorizes upon appeal. Charter school appeal responsibilities shifted from the Tennessee State Board of Education to the Tennessee Public Charter School Commission on January 1, 2021. On July 1, 2021, the charter authorization responsibilities will shift to the Tennessee Public Charter School Commission, making the Commission the LEA for current State Board authorized schools as well as any others authorized in the future.
