Charter School Request For Proposals: District 49 believes that every child should have the right to high-quality educational options. A Request For Proposals for high quality charter schools has been released with this in mind. The district is seeking motivated and talented teams of educators, parents, teachers, and community leaders with the commitment to implement effective and innovative methods of educating children. Because we understand that not every student learns the same way, the district desires to operate and authorize a robust portfolio of schools where programs are designed to fit the needs of individual students, while addressing our district’s priority needs for new school development.
