LAPCS is a membership organization that serves as a voice for charter schools in Louisiana, representing nearly 100 percent of charter schools in Louisiana that serve 87,500 students statewide.

Our work focuses on three areas:

  • Advocating on behalf of the charter school movement, informing decision-makers on sound charter school policies, and protecting charters from harmful policies;
  • Supporting charter schools through programs and services that help improve school operations and governance; and
  • Promoting the great work that charter schools are doing across the state and providing accurate information on charter schools to parents, communities, and the media.
