The establishment of the MN Charter School Board Governance Award was initiated from the goals of the Association’s Strategic Outcomes.

The Award is designed to recognize charter school boards that have in place the documents, policies, practices, and procedures which provide the foundation for effective governance of a public chartered school.

The Award criteria provide a baseline of board transparency, public accountability, and effective governance. Given that the Award is based on having the foundational policies, practices, and procedures in place, any charter school board can achieve the Award.

The MN Charter School Board Governance Award Application is available year-round and is open to all MACS member schools. Annual application deadlines are February 15th and August 15th. Please contact Michael Padgett, Member Relations Director, at if you have any questions.
