Welcome to the 2023 Louisiana Charter School Conference! This event is a yearly milestone brought to you by the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools (LAPCS), reflecting our ongoing commitment to fostering the charter school movement in our beautiful state.

Mark your calendars for December 14, 2023, and join us at the Sheraton New Orleans, located in the heart of the city. This conference promises a day of valuable insights, shared experiences, and effective practices that are shaping the future of charter schools in Louisiana.

While this year’s conference has no specific theme, our aim remains constant: to create an environment that encourages fruitful dialogue, mutual learning, and powerful networking opportunities. We aspire to bring together educators, administrators, policymakers, and stakeholders from across Louisiana and beyond to contribute to and learn from the charter school community.
