Charter Schools for Wisconsin
“In this time when families are looking for diverse opportunities for their children and the capacity of local districts is often quite stressed, OEO has the ability to be agile and serve community needs in a new way, through a partnership between the university and local schools.”Sarah Hackett , Wisconsin Resource Center for Charter Schools
Opportunity and Equity through Innovation and Incubation
We expand access to high quality innovative 4K-12 educational options for students, families, and communities across Wisconsin by authorizing and overseeing public charter schools that meet local needs, interests, and demands.
As part of the University of Wisconsin System, we live out the Wisconsin Idea by incubating new educational opportunities for 4K-12 students all across the state.
The Office of Educational Opportunity connects students, families, professional educators, and community leaders with opportunities to create, operate, and be a part of public charter schools that meet local needs, interests, and demands.
