What is a Charter School?
Hayward Collegiate is a public Charter School, which means we are open-enrollment and free-tuition. Charter Schools have certain freedoms afforded to them that District schools do not, such as autonomy over our budget, how we evaluate our teachers, and our educational program.
Charter schools were created to:
Increase opportunities for learning and access to quality education for all students
Create choice for parents and students within the public school system
Provide a system of accountability for results in public education
Encourage innovative teaching practices
Create new professional opportunities for teachers
Encourage community and parent involvement in public education
Leverage improved public education broadly
