• The Atlanta Public School’s Office of Innovation is responsible for the support and monitoring of the district’s charter and partner schools.  The office conducts a charter petition process each year, reviewing requests to establish new charters or renew existing charters that are coming to term.  Innovation then makes recommendations to the district superintendent regarding the viability of each charter request. 

    Partner schools are new to the Office of Innovation’s portfolio and represent Atlanta Public School’s (APS) commitment to quickly transform low performing schools and provide a high quality education to Atlanta’s students.  The first partner school transitioned to management by Purpose Built Schools in August, 2016.  Several more schools are contracted to transition over the next few years.  Partner schools serve all students in the original attendance zone and enrollment is open to any student living within that zone. 

    The Office of Innovation supports parents of our charter and partner school communities with family engagement, inquiries about our schools and complaint resolution.  Information about contacting the office can be found below.
