Specifications include, but are not limited to:Public charter school laws have been enacted in 42 states and the District of Columbia. However, these laws vary across the country. The Maryland Public Charter School Program was enacted in 2003 to enable public school staff, parents of public school students, nonsectarian nonprofit entities, and nonsectarian institutions of higher education to apply to a county board of education to establish a public charter school. Under the 2003 law, public charter schools must be nonsectarian and open to all students in the local school system on a space-available basis. Under State law, public charter schools may not charge tuition; instead, they receive public funds on a per pupil basis commensurate with the amount of funds disbursed to other public schools in the local school system in which the public charter school operates. Public charter schools must comply with the laws, regulations, and policies that govern traditional public schools, although waivers from some rules may be requested through an appeal to the Maryland State Board of Education (State Board)
