The two charter schools authorized by SPS, Pride Prep and Spokane International, are fully operational as charter schools since the passage of the newest charter law SB6194. For more info on charter schools please visit: FAQ's on Charter Schools
As the authorizer of these two schools, our responsibility is to ensure that all applicable laws and regulations are followed while allowing autonomy and freedom so that these schools may operate as hubs of innovation. SPS is committed to collaboration and fostering a positive working relationship with the two charter schools.
