In New Orleans’ unique school system, charter school leaders and their governing boards share the responsibility for making important decisions, alongside the school district and school board. In this collaborative environment, NSNO has played a central role in working closely with school leaders and policymakers to create policies that prioritize and balance accountability, autonomy, equity, and choice.
Though our schools have accomplished significant progress over time, there are still complex challenges in our city that hold our students back from achieving all the success they deserve. At NSNO, our mission is to deliver on the promise of excellent public schools for every child. To do this, we must continue to identify and act on opportunities to develop, improve, and advocate for policies that will better support our schools and students to thrive.
