Hawaii charter schools are state-funded public schools operating independently from the Hawaii Department of Education under contract with the State Public School Charter Commission. Charter schools are governed by their respective governing boards; the volunteer board is responsible to govern and facilitate the academic program and financial oversight of the school. Twelve of Hawaii’s 33 charter schools are located on Oahu. To learn more about charter schools and enrollment requirements, visit www.chartercommission.hawaii.gov.
