Rules and Policies

The Tennessee Public Charter School Commission establishes rules, policies, and LEA policies governing its work as the entity that hears charter school appeals and its work as a charter school authorizer and LEA.

Rules are approved by the Charter Commission and filed with the Secretary of State following review by the Attorney General, and are ultimately published in the Tennessee Administrative Register.

Policies voted on by the Charter Commission govern the Commission’s work as an appellate body and as a charter school authorizer.

LEA policies and procedures voted on by the Charter Commission govern the Commission’s work as an LEA, and these policies and procedures only apply to the charter schools operating within the Charter Commission school district.
