Application FAQ

Cycle Steps

The ICSB holds two application cycles per year: one in the spring and one in the fall. The full application cycle timeline can be viewed here.

  1. Letter of Intent 

  2. Full Application

  3. Applications Reviewed by ICSB Staff and External Evaluators 

  4. Capacity Interview with Applicant

  5. Public Hearing in Proposed School District 

  6. ICSB Board Meeting 

Prior to submitting a Letter of Intent, potential applicants are encouraged to carefully review the ICSB’s vision, mission, guiding principles and accountability system. As such, each application will be carefully evaluated for its alignment with the ICSB’s core principles and compliance with applicable law. Only those applicants that can demonstrate the capacity to operate high-performing charter schools will receive charters from the Indiana Charter School Board. 

As you review the application materials, please feel free to contact ICSB staff with questions.  You may submit your questions to charter-applications@icsb.in.gov or call 317-232-0499.
