Associate Membership: Pre-Operational School


[Schools with an approved charter that have not yet opened]

As a Pre-Operational School Associate Member, your school becomes an active part of a professional association that advocates for charter school policy issues, supports charter school innovation, quality and accountability, and facilities cooperation in Minnesota's charter school community to assure excellence in education for our students.



“When we’re looking for answers – whether it’s facilities, recruiting staff, marketing our school, or basic charter school questions, MACS provides the support we need.”

“As a new school, we appreciate the opportunities to network with other charter school leaders at MACS’ organized directors meetings, policy forums, conferences and more.”

“MACS already has numerous tools and templates available so we don’t have to re-invent the wheel on everything.  We then have more time to devote to ensuring the successful opening of our school.”
