The mission of the Rhode Island League of Charter Schools is to advocate for its members by supporting charter public schools as leaders in expanding choice and supporting and informing the public school reform movement across the state of Rhode Island. Since our founding in 2001, the Rhode Island League of Charter Schools has worked to expand the role of charter public schools in our public education system. The League is guided by the directors of the 20 member charter public schools. Together, we advocate, share best practices and collaborate.
