The Operating Plan for the Missouri Charter Public School Commission provides an overview of its values, principles, application process and procedures.

Missouri Charter Public School Commission accepts application on an ongoing basis.

Applications must be approved by the State Board of Education by December 1st in order to open the following school year. Schools planning to open the next school year must have a final application to the Commission by May 31st. Applications received June 1 or after will be reviewed for opening in the year following the next school year. The Missouri Charter Public School Commission reserves the right to modify this deadline.

(NOTE: BS638 moves the deadline  for charter approval by the State Board of Education from December 1 of the year prior to the proposed opening date to January 31. This bill is awaiting the Governor's signature.)
